Edwards Performing Artist and Maynard Ferguson alum Steve Wiest has just released Excalibur. This CD consists of eight big band charts written and/or arranged by Steve. It’s a remarkable recording in every way — a breath of fresh air for the genre.
Steve hand-picked the musicians for this project. The trombonists are Paul McKee (lead), Mark Bettcher, Barry Oosterwaal and Matt Ingman (bass). Great music is the bottom line so Excalibur should be in every trombone player/music lover’s library — not to collect dust but to enjoy on a daily basis.
