Each month like clockwork, Bone Southwest’s Michael Lake sends out a new free piece of his music to subscribers of his music feed at www.altobone.com.
This month’s piece is based on Bill Reichenbach’s great original called Chief and Frank. Dedicated to his two great influences, Emory Remington and Frank Rosolino, the beautiful homage is arranged for 5 tenor and one bass trombone.
Michael designed a variety of sounds throughout the piece which he overdubbed using his alto trombone along with bass trombone and tuba samples. The start of the song is particularly interesting in that it introduced not just the music put the men whose influences inspired Bill’s arrangement.
Listen to Chief and Frank, and while you’re there, sign up on the home page for all Mike’s monthly pieces.
