"A sound that demands attention...inventive and swinging!" WABC Radio, NYC
"The best big band you've never heard about!" Hot House
Dave Chamberlain's BAND of BONES plays swinging big band jazz with a sound you've never heard before : EIGHT trombones, flute, and a sensational rhythm section. Add a few vocals, and we're off on a fabulous CARAVAN ride through nine titles that are at once straight ahead, Latin-Jazz, Ballad, or Bluesy. So take your pick. As WBGO Program Director Gary Walker says in his liner notes, "Dave Chamberlain and his BAND of BONES have a clean windshield and a full tank of gas, their caravan occupied by nine trombones with world class pedigree, a rhythm section built for the synergy you'll feel, a passioned singer and a couple of special guests who wouldn't miss the ride for the world!" Those special guests are STEVE TURRE and HENDRIK MEURKENS, who both bring not only their considerable improvising talents, but also contribute original compositions. Each track has a different vibe, the arrangements are exciting, and the soloists let it all hang out!
