“As a trombone player and fan of the trombone I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing performances or recordings that I find so remarkable I find myself thinking: “wow, that’s amazing…a trombone made that music”. Jim Nova’s recording A Fall from Light to Dark is one of those seminal moments. The skill he exhibits in all aspects of this recording is truly impressive, from the wonderful arrangements and command of recording technology, to the amazing trombone playing. His technique, power, and musicianship are superb…on ALL the trombones. Inspirational. I again think to myself: “wow, that’s amazing, a trombone did that”….and it’s just one person.”
