A Song For Japan

Trombonists from Japan and around the world perform for charity and to maintain awareness of the on going efforts to recover from the tragedies of March 11. "A song for Japan" is a beautiful piece, I think you will agree, written by Belgian trombonist Steven Verhelst. Enjoy.



Whether you play trombone or not, be sure to visit the website http://www.trombones.jp for more clips, information, free downloadable sheet music, t-shirts, artwork and tools to help you contribute to the cause through music. All profits go to the Japan Red Cross.



Special thanks to my high school buddy and fellow trombonist, Larry, who sent me the link.

Just re-booted my Windows XP and the sound system went kaput... so, no sound...
The images look good, though...

Lrong - that's a bummer. I hope you get it fixed soon. This website may be of help: missing or lost sound in Windows. Good luck.

Wow...that brought a tear to my eye. Beautiful!

What's really interesting is how each performer and each ensemble has a different, unique tone color and playing style. Each player's personality is reflected through the instrument.

Moody - puts tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat every time.

Yes, the styles are quite interesting to contrast. I especially like the ensembles, but going between solos, duets, and larger groups, makes the whole larger than the sum of the parts.

What an effort! Indeed, a beautiful and touching piece. I cried. Thanks for sharing it and the link, PandaB.
