Downtown Bluesfrom Downtown Diversions for Trombone and Wind Band (Big Band)

Gorb, Adam

In 2008, after persuasion by Tim Reynish, the composer agreed to the release of this special movement as a separate work. It's scoring has not been tampered with in any way and is noticably that of a Big Band line up. (The percussion part could easily be played by one player on drum kit.) Downtown Blues is a wonderful addition to the repertoire and is an ideal prelude to the more complicated work. "This gentle, bluesy movement is some of the best cod jazz you will ever hear".
