As a trombone player myself, I loved it, but I think that anyone could read this book and really like it.
Kurt Dietrich's book "Duke's Bones" takes a very thorough in-depth look at the various trombonists who passed through the band at different stages. By making a special study of three trombonists "Tricky Sam" Nanton - the plunger expert, Juan Tizol - valve trombonist and composer and Lawrence Brown, the virtuoso soloist, Dietrich sets the scene for a broader view of other members of the trombone section. The book contains detailed musical examples of solos and effects and, although of primary interest to trombonists, would be relevant to anyone who wishes to have a better understanding of the Duke's special way of using his musicians.
