My second recording, Connections, highlights James Stephenson’s Arch Rhapsody. I’m thrilled to have initiated it’s composition, and addition to the Bass Trombone repertoire.

It has many hidden connections to the Arch in St. Louis. Arch designer Eero Saarinen provides the opening phase, pulled from the vowels in his name. (the notes E-E-A-A-E)

Many other very clever connections suffuse the entire piece. Other works include a trombone quartet, brass quintet and low brass octet, which form another design of this recording, that of featuring ensemble compositions.

It also gives my many great colleagues from the STL Symphony a chance to shine, and shine they do!
