Chick’ a’ Bone Checkout

Christan Lindberg’s “Chick’ a’ Bone Checkout” for alto, tenor & bass trombone was premiered by Charlie Vernon ( bass trombone - CSO ) with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 2006.  Lindberg, a living legend among trombonists, has been commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Association to compose a piece for Charlie, and the collaboration between two of the greatest trombonists of all time begin. The result was exactly as expected, beautiful melodies combined with rhythmic interludes and an excellent orchestration make this composition a great addition to the trombone solo repertoire.
At the premiere, in Orchestra Hall, the performance received an instant standing ovation, an extremely rare occurrence for a new composition.

  1. That's a pretty cool piece, for sure. That is also probably some of the most skillful alto trombone playing I have seen.
