Bad to the Bone!

Inspired by all things trombone today's SHIFT salutes the underdog of brass instruments.

We'll examine its versatility.  You can take a trombone skiing!

That skiing Trombonist is called Sean Pawling, check out his other trombone music its really rather lovely.

We'll also celebrate The trombone's funky sound.

A trombones  capacity for silliness. 

Its role as a butt for some rather cruel jokes.
