London Trombone Sound

  The London based, Cala Records is known for its creative programming and high quality recorded sound. From 1990, the year when it was formed, the label has released over 100 CD's. Perhaps the most innovative project the label has started, was the "London Sound" series. The first CD released under this new series was The London Cello Sound, including 40 players from professional London based orchestras. The recording quickly become a best seller, so the company started producing more CD's in the series using other instruments of the orchestra, such as the violins, violas, double basses, horns, trumpets, trombones and harps.
 Former conductor of The University of North Texas Symphony Orchestra, Geoffrey Simon is the Artistic Director of Cala Records, Ltd. and the conductor for The London Trombone Sound recording. With the music arrangements by Eric Crees, principal trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra, and with the participation of 16 professional orchestral players from London, this recording represents the ultimate showcase for the trombone.
