Playing Favorites - Scott, Deb


159 kr - Utgången

Trombonist Debra Scott makes her Navona debut with PLAYING FAVORITES, a collaboration with pianist Ron Petti to perform a variety of personal favorite pieces culled from her jazz and classical backgrounds. “What engages me most about these pieces is their accessibility to a diverse audience,” says Scott, “which I hope makes for enjoyable and exciting musical moments.” River Runner, the central piece on the album, began as a paddling trip Scott took with composer Stephen Lias through Santa Elena Canyon at Big Bend National Park in Texas. Scott and Petti vividly animate Lias’ musical response to the trip, calling to mind the exploration of nature landscapes and excitement of adventure up through the visceral and kinetic third and final movement, “Rock Slide.” Derek Bourgeois’s crowd-pleasing Trombone Concerto follows, containing a blend of pop, jazz, and classical aimed to appeal to a swath of audiences. William Goldstein’s emotional Colloquy for Solo Trombone follows with jazz elements that explore opposing feelings of positivity and angst against a backdrop of Americana. Finally, the album closes with Carnival of Venice, composed by Jean-Baptiste Arban and arranged for trombone by Donald Hunsberger. With its animated imagery of masked processions and glittering festivities, it provides a vibrant finale to an album of trombone performances both personal to Scott and poised to add to the instrument’s lexicon. KEY POINTS * When Debra Scott, was growing up, she recalls being told it was “unusual for a girl to play trombone. Fortunately, I never thought much about that, and neither did my parents.” Scott went on to become the first woman to complete her doctorate in trombone performance from the University of North Texas. * Scott has focused her career on teaching. She is currently professor of trombone at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, where she has established the school’s first jazz band. * Scott is active as a performer, appearing in countless recitals and concerts across the United States and Europe, as well as on the Canadian radio broadcast Women in Brass. She has made appearances as performer and clinician at the International Trombone Association Convention and Argentina’s Trombonanza conference. * Ron Petti is director of accompanying at Stephen F. Austin State University, as well as director of the Master of Music degree in collaborative piano. As a pianist, he performs alongside fellow faculty members in The Alazan Trio, a group dedicated to playing piano trios by American composers. * Petti has performed at the Music Teachers National Association Conventions, National Association of Teachers of Singing Conventions, the Estes Park Chamber Music Festival in Colorado, in several European tours with the SFA A Cappella Choir, and at the NASA Saxophone Conventions.
