Program Notes

Out of sheer respect and admiration for Jacob Collier, I decided to adapt his arrangement of Stevie Wonder’s 1972 tune You and  for trombones. This is by far one of the hardest arrangements I have ever done but being able to explore the harmonic complexities of Jacob’s arrangement was an amazing experience. Special thanks to June Lee for his amazing transcription, I would have never been able to complete the trombone adaptation without it.
