"3 Trombone Solos features three long tracks, very well recorded by Malachi Ritscher (Chicago), Dylan van der Schyff (Portland), and Micha de Kanter (Amsterdam) between October, 2005 and August, 2006. Nice dynamics, natural sound. Maybe taking inspiration from the place where it was recorded, Chicago has a slow start with a definite blues flavour, progressively getting more "swing" (at times one can almost hear a ride cymbal marking the time in the background). Then, the plunger, and - starting at about 5' - something that definitely sounds very Mingus-like. Starting at about 8', there's a nice episode which almost sounds "ambient" for synthesizer, Wierbos making great use of multiphonics. Then it's the sound of the breath inside the instrument, then - starting at about 14' - there's a soundhythm that definitely reminded me of scratching. Towards the end, strange pops and sounds reminded me of (the late) Lester Bowie's "expanded" trumpet. Portland opens with a "drone" withmultiphonics progressively growing in intensity. Starting at about 5' there's a swing climate which seems to feature a few quotes. There's a slow melodic exploration, getting gradually agitated. Like in the previous piece, there's a moment (at about 19') where breathing sounds come to the fore, the piece coming to its close with a thematic exploration. Amsterdam opens with overtones and something that sounds like (but obviously isn't) a loop, then it's in the trumpet register. Starting at about 4' there's a cool, swing climate, almost like a pocket-sized big band. There's applause at 7', then a second part that goes in "parallel": a frenzied opening section, a loop, melodic playing, then it's "trumpet", then "tuba", then a "synth loop"; then it's a fine close, somewhat mirroring the one from the first part of the track."-Beppe Colli
