Thanks to Mark and Austin for being totally amazing to work with and to Rob Chalfen for having us play.

Unfortunately, due to a technical mishap that was entirely the trombonist’s fault, we weren’t able to record the entire performance of the OPQ’s recent hit at the Outpost.  Missing from this documentation is the incredibly brave performance Kathy gave on her Blues for Mac, the group’s nuanced reading of Stone Age Rhumba, and the deep, odd-metered pocket of Mark and Austin’s work on Reverie.  At least we have something from the gig, and I hope you enjoy the tunes!

Things have been pretty quiet here at Trombonist-at-Large for the past month.  That’s something I hope to change very soon!  Keep yer’ eyes peeled!
