Program Notes

"Father of the Trombone Smear," Henry Fillmore, wrote a series of fifteen novelty ragtime solos known as The Trombone Family. Miss Trombone - the first of these - was written in 1908. Dr. Contorno's setting maintains all the fun and mischief of the original.

-Program note by publisher


This delightful setting of the Fillmore ragtime march captures all the spirit and energy of the original. Fillmore, known as the “Father of the Trombone Smear,” wrote a series of fifteen novelty ragtime pieces featuring trombone smears that he referred to as The Trombone Family. This march was the first of the series. The arrangement gives the trombones, euphoniums, and tenor saxophones the bulk of the melodic material, with the trombones of course also featured with numerous smears. Precise rhythmic execution, careful attention to articulation and dynamic indications, and proper performance of the trombone smears are crucial for an exceptional performance.
