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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
