Notes & Reviews:

Simply some of the best trombonists around, from professional orchestras, premier military bands, and university faculty! Washington Trombone Ensemble is made up of the finest trombone players in the Washington DC area. The group's goal is to become the country's only large professional trombone ensemble. The WTE is striving to build a repertoire of new music and arrangements written for the group that will allow them to take full advantage of the many voices in their unique ensemble. This recording features the bass trombone concerto the WTE co-commissioned with Matthew Guilford and premiered at the Eastern Trombone Workshop in 2010.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
A wonderful addition to the tiny catalog of recordings by large trombone ensembles, and a worthy follow-up to the recent one by the Chicago Trombone Consort (July/Aug 2010: 209). The Washington Trombone Ensemble has 22 players - including, remarkably, nine bass trombonists - all members of profession al orchestras, top service bands, and university faculties.
