The trombone has frequently been relegated to the status of footnotes and afterthoughts in much of the research on brass instruments. This book is designed to feature the trombone, its history, music, performers, performance practices (including jazz performance), instruments and equipment, and pedagogical topics that are of concern to those who teach the instrument.
The book may be used by trombonists and the broader research community who are interested in finding material both common and arcane about the trombone. The information may be perused at three levels: browsing through the broad classifications of each chapter; checking for cross-listings in the annotations; and using the index which is keyed to the author, subject, and keyword line at the end of each annotation. The book also includes four appendixes: the first identifies relevant periodicals and journals; the second lists obituaries of trombonists not included in biographical citations; the third lists presidents of the International Trombone Association; the fourth lists recipients of the ITA Award.
