"68 Egmont Street Breakdown" -- comp. Stan Bann
  • "68 Egmont Street Breakdown" -- comp. Stan Bann
In cart Not available Out of stock
$45.00

A bluesy, fun swing original by Stan Bann. The piece is a caricature of the college life in his Brookline apartment (notice the somewhat tipsy 5/4 break following the solos!). An audience pleasing romp suitable for any concert setting.

Scored for 4 tenor trombones, 1 bass trombone, euphonium, tuba, piano, bass, and drums.

"Williwaw" -- comp. Stan Bann
  • "Williwaw" -- comp. Stan Bann
In cart Not available Out of stock

"Williwaw" is a study in contrasts. From long, lyrical lines to punchy, rhythmic themes; from lush, warm harmonies to harsh rubbing dissonance. The warmth and power will challenge your musicians and engage your audiences!

Scored for six tenor trombones, two bass trombones, two euphoniums, and tuba.

PENMANSHIP RELEASE PARTY - Thanks for A Great Evening

Just a quick note to express my gratitude to the members of Stan Bann's Big Bone Band, the Como Dockside Pavilion, and especially the wonderful Como Park audiences for a fun and memorable release party last night! You guys rock!

PREMIERE WEEKEND (3/26)

I'm pleased to announce the premieres of two of my pieces this weekend at the 44th Annual Minneapolis Trombone Choir concert. Sunday, 3/26/17 at Judson Church in Minneapolis. The concert starts at 4:00.

"Caprice" is an original composition scored for trombones, euphoniums, tuba, piano, and timpani.

"68 Egmont Street Breakdown: The Enigma Speaks Out" is a jazz piece that lets the trombones stretch out a bit. At least until the 5/4 section ...

Here's a quick promotional video for Sunday's concert with portions of "Caprice" as underscore.

January is the start of a new year and the first movement of the 2018 Overture! Sign up for all the details!
