$17.50 USD



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 glissando as the "hook". These 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 of "Oh 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 beautifully arranged by Aaron Hettinga for Trombone and Piano. It is playable by moderately advanced performers.

Cherry Classics Music will be publishing the complete series of these works for Trombone and Piano by Davis arranged by Mr. Hettinga.
