Two of a Mind by Douglas Yeo and Nick Hudson: A Review

By Gordon Bowie • June 18, 2002
Like Douglas Yeo's previous recording venrtures, this is an eclectic mix of material. Unlike the previous albums, this includes the added element of sharing the solo honors with Nick Hudson, principal trombone of the Williams Fairey Band.



Proclamation & In Search of a Dream: A Review

By Gordon Bowie • January 01, 1998
Proclamation, a ground-breaking CD by Boston Symphony bass trombonist Douglas Yeo, is described by its executive producer as "a recording in celebration of the bass trombone." What a splendid celebration it is!



Perceptions and El Torro: Two Reviews

By Gordon Bowie • January 01, 1900
During the last quarter-century the available literature for Bass Trombone has increased dramatically both in quantity and quality as the instrument has become more widely recognized for its unique qualities and abilities. These two works are examples of that trend. Both of these works are for unaccompanied Bass Trombone.
