The Heavens Atheist Gospel Trombone Choir @ Joe's Pub 10/16/12

Jacob made a new CD where he's playing all of the trombone parts - dubbing himself in.  Since he couldn't play all the parts live, he put together this great ensemble for the gig.  There will be at least a couple more opportunities to catch it.  I was psyched to see Kenny Wolleson at the drumkit in addition to 5 trombones that included Curtis Hasselbring and Josh Roseman and Brian Drye on baritone horn and trombone.  The listing below says Curtis Fowlkes but I don't think he was there that night.  It was great and a lot of fun.

From the mind of Jacob Garchik comes an astonishing and astounding testament to the power of reason. A nine part suite for trombone choir, the record features up to eight trombones, two baritones, two sousaphones, and a cameo by a pint-sized-sounding slide trumpet. All of the parts were recorded by Garchik in his Brooklyn home studio.
