These original tunes are written for 5 or 6 trombones, piano, bass and drums, as indicated. One of the trombones in each case is a bass-trombone. In most of them, there is a lot of space for jazz improvisation. These trombone arrangements were all played regularly by
BILL'S BONES, a band ran by Bill Guy.
