Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz "...the trombonist's debut possesses a certain gravity, like a serious expression of idle fun." Bird is the Worm "...uniformly stellar..." New York Jazz Record Bass trombonist, Jennifer Wharton takes her enthusiasm for the horn seriously and hopes to spread her joy to the public with her infectiously fun ensemble, Bonegasm. According to leader Jennifer, a "bonegasm" is a climax of musical excitement. It is characterized by feelings of pleasure centered in the ears and experienced as an accompaniment to hearing a group of trombone players. Jennifer is a regular in two of the best large ensembles in jazz, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society and the Alan Ferber Big Band. These playing experiences led to her to create a band that would commission composers to write and arrange music for the often overlooked trombone. Rounding out this ensemble are composer/trombonist Nate Mayland (Wishbone Project, Pedro Giraudo Orchestra), composer/trombonist Ryan Keberle (Catharsis, Reverso) and composer/trombonist/Grammy-nominated arranger John Fedchock (John Fedchock NY Big Band) as well as seasoned rhythm section members Mike Eckroth on piano, Evan Gregor on bass and Don Peretz on drums. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=366473 Birdland Jazz Club Birdland Jazz Club
