Marshall Gilkes + Ryan Keberle
If you want to play small group you better start playing in a big band.
Hip-Bone Music is proud to feature Marshall Gilkes and Ryan Keberle as our artists of the month for June. Two of the most virtuosic instrumentalists in the burgeoning jazz trombone world, Marshall and Ryan are both members of the Grammy award winning Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, as well as being solo artists in their own right. Michael sits down with these two young lions to discuss everything from the state of jazz education, how they set out to record their own CDs and get gigs to support those releases, the importance of big band playing and what direction they see the music business heading. Fresh and insightful perspectives from two of the brightest stars in the jazz trombone world today.
