Tuning up for a Trombone Summit this Sunday!

Fred's hard at work practicing so he'll be ready Sunday to face two of his most respected trombone-playing compadres: Clifford Adams of Kool and the Gang and Robert Trowers, a fellow alum of the Count Basie Orchestra. 

Trowers, now a faculty member in North Carolina Central University's excellent jazz program, put the Summit together, mainly for middle and high school students, to "stimulate student interest in the trombone, an instrument that seems to be under-represented in school  bands and orchestras in general."

The Summit is free and open to the public.
