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.

I'd like to add to Wendy Le Van's and your twitter conversation.I'm biased each way; I learned all my trombone and horn appreciation from Tom and Wendybiscuit's from Maple Ridge. I have to support her saying trombonists have great concertos Tom, some of us, I know it's not just me, dig Michael Haydn more than Franz Joseph. I'd listen to his Trombone concerto twice as often as older brother's horn ones.I see Papa Haydn as the boring uncle. Michael is the bad boy uncle who you can't wait to get into trouble with because you know he's your mom's favourite brother. Here're 99 other trombone solos in the spotlight.
