Joe Fiedler's Big Sackbut (Yellow Sound Label) by Joe Fiedler
Three trombones and a tuba. It could've sounded like some ferocious avant-garde experiment, but instead this track is an exuberant but of joy. Big instruments showing their lighter side. Fun and exciting stuff.
About the track
Four Powerhouse Voices Come Together on trombonist/composer Joe Fielder's new recording. is the self titled debut recording from this group, featuring Joe Fiedler, Josh Roseman, Ryan Keberle & Marcus Rojas. The album opens with "Mixed Bag", a kind of grooving, patchwork, polyphonic "quilt" that Fiedler has been piecing together for many years. "I love the vibe and interaction between the cats in the introduction, and I think that it sets the tone for what is to follow," said Fiedler.
