“In this album, you are more than a trombone player. You’re a performing artist who is putting out your creativity in ways that transcend the bass trombone. My hat is off to you!”
Former Bass Trombone, Boston Symphony Orchestra

This effort is by far the most unique to date, and continues the concept of the previous recording, Solitude.
I’ve become interested in presenting a unified style throughout a recording or performance (see retirement concert), focusing on creating an ambiance over the course of a listening. It finds it’s expression in pieces that weren’t intended for trombone, but I think translate well to my instrument.
Most of the arrangements are mine, and along the way, I was joined by my new musical friend and accomplice, Jack Clift. His guitar added a sound and direction to a couple of the works that otherwise would not have existed.
I suggest with this music, you sit back, turn down the lights, maybe light a candle, sit on your Zafu, and relax. Nothing here is meant to impress, just express a calmness and serenity that you may find a respite in your daily life, a departure from what you’ve heard before coming from my trombone. Did I just say Departure? Isn’t that a coincidence?
Listen to Gerry play Lontano over some cool NASA imagery.
If you come to the recording with an open mind I think you will be moved, fascinated, and inspired by the creativity presented in Epilogue."
