Dr. Eila Peterson
I don’t think I know enough to have really been influenced yet, but I
have most certainly been inspired by a legion of very nice musical
people, mostly freaks of brass, including (in no particular order) Eila
Peterson, Wendy Grasdahl, Taina Lorenz, Wendy Watson, Joel
Tomlenovitch, Joel Gray, Ken Read and Ormand Jones. I must add the
entire membership of the Ritchie trombone Choir. I consider it a high
privilege to be able play with all of these guys.
Whilst a youngling, over four decades ago I played the trumpet in high
school, thank you very much Zonia, and did not play until a couple of
years ago. Against my inclination to pick up the trumpet, I rented a
trombone from Ormand, as I had a full learning curve in front of me
regardless of what instrument I chose. Frankly, even today, I am
shocked at how much fun the trombone is to play, and obviously I have
just started. Now to segway to the important stuff. Karen and I will
recognize our 33rd anniversary this December (2011), despite her choice
of playing the flute. No one is perfect except trombonists....
