    Meat Salad

    Meat Salad is a new piece for solo bass trombone commissioned by Ilan Morgenstern of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Inspired in part by the slap-bass stylings of artists like Bootsy Collins and in part by the inimitable trombone playing of `Funky Fred' Wesley, this piece is simultaneously a groovy crowd-pleaser and an acrobatic showstopper. `Meat Salad' gives the advanced bass trombonist the opportunity unleash his/her full repertoire of tricks including: trills, growls, turns, glissandi, extended range, and just about every type articulation imaginable. This piece was premiered in August 2019 at the 2nd annual Vancouver Trombone Week, with the composer adding an emphatic (if unsophisticated) cowbell accompaniment to Morgenstern's bass trombone.
