The Vinyl Report is back with a new episode featuring Jeff Bush and The Two Sides of Slide Hampton. Since he was a kid, Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra lead trombonist and Pgh native, Jeff Bush, has been a fan of the great Slide Hampton. A native of Jeannette, PA, Slide is one of the most revered trombonists in Jazz, as well as one of the truly great composers and arrangers of the music. In this episode of The Vinyl Report, we spend some time with Jeff listening to Hampton’s 1961 album, The Two Sides of Slide, as he shares his insights as a fellow trombonist and composer/arranger.
