The International Trombone Association Press has published the Second Edition of the third volume of Stereograms, Nos. 21-30. These original unaccompanied solos for bass trombone are also appropriate for tenor trombone with â€˜fâ€™-attachment and work well for euphonium, bassoon, â€˜cello and most bass clef instruments. Featuring self-accompaniment in the style of Bobby McFerrin, Stereograms have garnered praise and been recorded and performed around the world.
â€œEverglades” ranges in style from Funk Etudes dedicated to Bill Reichenbach and Fred Wesley to Swing tributes for Glenn Miller and â€œTrickyâ€ Sam Nanton. The most recent volume features a mixed-meter romp honoring Chris Brubeck and two additional â€˜laid backâ€™ etudes, which have soaked up impressions of the Florida Keys, and are dedicated to Jeff Reynolds and Ken Thompkins.
Those who enjoyed â€˜Spainâ€™ or â€˜Africaâ€™ from Volume II will be drawn to No. 26-â€™Cubaâ€™ from Volume III. Dedicated to Phil Teele, this extended concert Etude utilizes innovative expressive devices with flowing, hypnotic Afro-Cuban mixed-meters. Two final pieces include a novelty â€˜gliss-festâ€™ dedicated to Henry Fillmore and a dreamy piece of Americana honoring Emory Remington. â€œEvergladesâ€ is available from Hickeyâ€™s Music and other fine retailers.
