Notes & Reviews:

"Opening with the Beethoven, it took Booth just 40 seconds to start amazing me with beautiful tone quality, ultra-high notes played with seeming ease, lip trills and ornaments executed with deft elegance...this is some of the loveliest trombone playing I have heard. In each piece he makes extremely difficult passages sound easy and beautiful...This is one of the finest solo trombone recordings ever made...I hope we hear more from Bill Booth." -Kilpatrick, ARG
