A vibrant voyage of trombone joy.

About the Album

"New and Happy" is the first track from trombonist/composer Nick Grinder's album "Farallon," out February 22, 2019 via Outside In Music. The Farallon Islands lie just 30 miles west of the Golden Gate Bridge, but seem like another world entirely. Their rocky shores are off-limits to humans (outside of a handful of biologists), reserved instead for a rich variety of seabirds and marine mammals. Growing up in the Bay Area, Grinder felt a deep attachment to the islands. Farallones were a constant presence to Bay Area residents, a far-off landscape always on the horizon, ever present but just out of reach. On his second album as a leader, Grinder reflects on the sense of place and reminder of home offered by even such an inaccessible locale.
