Jeff Gray, 2021
Year: 2020 Duration: 3:00 Grade: Medium-Advanced Dedicated to my dear teacher, Jeff Gray of the Rochester Philharmonic. Premiered and recorded by Jeff Gray, Bass Trombone on April 22nd, 2021 at Roberts Wesleyan University.
Gray Matter is a laid back Blues composed for solo bass trombone and written for Jeff Gray, Bass Trombonist of the Rochester Philharmonic. This piece is great for tenor trombonists looking to expand their low register, tuba players looking to stretch their higher playing and is extremely accessible for our friends that play the euphonium. According to Mr. Gray, “It’s really a great piece man – nice, accessible and “COVID chop” worthy!”
