Dean Anderson, conductor * Founded in 2002, UCLA Symphony is UCLA's campus-wide orchestra, drawing its membership from throughout the university community. It meets Wednesday evenings, performs one concert per quarter, and is open to all UCLA undergraduates, graduate/professional school students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. This orchestra is a non-major orchestra.
I'm featured in an interview on David Brubeck's site this month. The interview is part of an essay called “The Jazz Bass Trombone”. We talk about Ellington's use of the bass trombone in particular, as well as Ellington's use of the tuba and when he made the switch to string bass, and long time Ellington trombonist Chuck Connors.
There's A LOT of info there...give it a read!
I'm very excited to share four YoutTube videos recently recorded for the artist Aloe Blacc at the fabled "secret studios" @YouTube in Los Angeles. We had a ton of fun recording and hanging.
