From the Mind of Nick Lane: Trombone Quartets
“Fuguing Time” Chart for Trombone Quartet (3:04)
An up tempo fugue style piece where the theme gets passed around to each player….close to classical in style, although I’m sure my old harmony teacher wouldn’t agree.
“Gone But Not Forgotten” Chart for Trombone Quartet (3:35)
Ballad in 3/4 time featuring legato style with contemporary harmony.
“Groove Merchant” Chart for Trombone Quartet (3:30)
Trombone quintet….Originally written to perform with the trombone section for clinics/concerts. Spiritual chorale intro into a shuffle groove of the classic Jerome Richardson melody….solo improv on trombone 1.

Rousing call to arms for slide protagonists everywhere.
“Shades of Gray” Chart for Trombone Quartet (2:10)
Jazz waltz in medium tempo with melody passed around between each player.

A contemporary piece written for the los Angeles trombone quartet. A challenging tour de force for advanced players.
