    Mr. Trombonology - A Characteristic Trombone Smear (Hettinga)

    20th Century (1917). Mr. Trombonology by African American composer, trombonist, bandleader and publisher Nathaniel Cleophas "Shorty" Davis was written in 1917 as a trombone solo in the American genre of Ragtime featuring the trombone's patented glissandoas the "hook." These types of solos were also called smears or jazzes. Mr. Trombonology is one of five entertaining works from Davis' "Trombone Family" written between 1915 and 1921 and comes with the subtitle "A Characteristic Trombone Smear; The Son ofOh Slip It Man." The work even comes with a "shout-out" chorus page of music for those times when you want to get the crowd all pepped up! Perfect for school shows, etc. This arrangement has been arranged by Aaron Hettinga for trombone and piano. It is playable by moderately advanced performers. Thanks to Douglas Yeo for his research and advice. -the publisher
