According to the International Trombone Association (ITA), International Trombone Week is officially April 7 through 14 2024. But they go on to say “…every other day in April and surrounding weeks count, too!”

In that spirit (and since The Night Beat show is once a week), we’re going to play lots of stellar recordings by some of the very best trombonists in the history of jazz. Among the trombonists we’ll feature this week: are Jack Teagarden, Steve Davis, Marshall Gilkes, Steve Turre, and Papo Vazquez.

We’ll also note the birthdates of organist Joey DeFrancesco and jazz pianist/clinical professor of psychology Denny Zeitlin.

Be sure to tune in every Wednesday in April beginning at 8 p.m. for what we’re calling “The Art of the Jazz Trombone” as we celebrate International Trombone Week Month on The Night Beat.
