Matt Niess Capitol Bones: My Favorite Things

Them ‘bones, them fabulous Capitol ‘Bones! Trombonist Matt Niess leads his five-trombone team and rhythm section in a memorable recording debut through an assorted 13-tune set that swings and sways through superbly arranged versions of classics such as Parker’s “Anthropology,” Strayhorn’s “Lush Life,” Coltrane’s “Impressions,” Garner’s “Misty,” and more standards and group originals. Whether playing bop, ballads, funk, or Latin jazz, this sensational D.C.-area band generates ensemble and solo work that brings the oft-ignored trombone to glorious prominence.
