OUT of BOUNDS, a new solo CD featuring English bass trombonist Michael Eversden (North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra) has just been released.  

The CD explores interesting and little known 20th and 21st Century music for bass trombone in a chamber music setting and features the instrument accompanied by brass and string quartets and a wind quintet, and duets with percussion, violin and flute. 

To order:

Requiem - Hansjörg Fink and Elmar Lehnen
An unusual journey into the spheres of improvisation and traditional requiem chants: Hansjörg Fink and Elmar Lehnen prove to be border crossers, demonstrating that contrasts can be tied together. Age-old tradition meets vibrant, jazzy joie de vivre; composed music meets improvisation; liturgy meets world; spirituality meets sensuality. Fink and Lehnen move assuredly on historic foundations, adding their own, liberal figures. Sombre moments of death appear here in a new, milder light.
