A very special one-off performance by three titans of the trombone, made possible by the support of Michael Rath Trombones.

Two-time Grammy award winning Michael Dease is associate professor of jazz trombone at Michigan State University and has played with Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Paul Simon and Alicia Keys.

Mark Nightingale is a composer, arranger and first-call session musician, equally at home in jazz, pop and classical genres. He has played with Wycliffe Gordon, James Morrison, Bill Frisell, Steely Dan and Tina Turner.

Dennis Rollins is a bandleader, composer and arranger and a very distinctive stylist on the trombone. He has played with the Jazz Warriors, Courtney Pine, Cleveland Watkiss, Jamiroquai and Beverley Knight.

All three are endorsees of Michael Rath Trombones, the world’s leading custom trombone builder, based six miles from Marsden in Honley.

The Bones of Rath are joined by:

Dan Whieldon (piano)
Ben Crosland (bass)
Dave Tyas (drums)
