It’s always a pleasure to sit down with one of the GREAT players of the day, especially if that player happens to play the same instrument you play! This episode is Part 1 of my interview with Jim Pugh, trombonist, educator, arranger and composer. (If you liked this one, check out Jim Pugh 2, and Jim Pugh #3!)

Thundering Herd

We play music from his early days of playing in the Woody Herman Orchestra and end the show with the final movement of Jim playing his Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra. A bunch of spectacular playing tonight for you!
