BIG BAND

Rob Stoneback Big Band: Mad to the Bone (feat. Bill Watrous)
Rob Stoneback Big Band: Caught in the Web

All-new arrangements and some new compositions from a great, swinging band. You’ll know most of the tunes, but you’ve never heard them this exciting. Great band + great charts = great listening!

Bill Watrous: Bare Bones

Two superb trombonists, legendary Bill Watrous and his buddy Rob Stoneback, perform swinging jazz standards accompanied by Craig Kastelnik on Hammond B3 organ and Gary Rissmiller on drums. Kind of an impromptu jam, but the jazz spotlights two friends having a most happy time together. A must-have for jazz fans and trombonists! Recorded in 2006.

Bill Watrous Quartet: Live in Living Comfort

Bill Watrous is one of the all-time great jazz trombonists. On "Live in Living Comfort," he once again demonstrates his incredible technique combined with his lyrical ideas. He delivers ballads like no one else and gets around the horn with lightning speed.
