Program Notes

In the years surrounding the dawn of the twentieth century, bands such as those of John Philip Sousa, Harold B. Bachman, Edwin Franko Goldman, and others were in high demand, and frequently played specialty numbers featuring various sections of the band.

One of the best tunes from this era is Buell N. Withrow’s feature tune Trombonium. He named the tune after an unusual upright valve trombone, which, curiously, because it didn’t have a slide, was unable to play the trombone smears that characterize this tune.
