This second volume of Trombone Travels (Volume 1 is on 8.574093) continues with Matthew Gee's exploration of three great cycles of early 20th-century British song. Elgar's Sea Pictures evoke lullaby and turbulence alike, Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel chart a wanderer's lonely journey through the landscape, and in Songs of the Sea Stanford's music embraces both the somber and the exhilarating, with Gee joined by a trombone chorus to emulate the male voice choir. Throughout the recital Gee lavishes coloristic effects, the use of mutes, and subtle inflections that reinforce the trombone's unique ability to mimic vocal techniques.
