Description About the Composer

N’Awlins Medley” (Level IV) Scored for 3 tenor trombones and 1 bass trombone (plus optional drum set) by a native New Orleanian, this medley includes four tunes. “If Ever I Cease to Love” is a revered Mardi Gras anthem, quasi-march. The swing “Down By The Riverside,” also public domain, includes glissandos worthy of subtitling it “Down By The Trombone Slide.” An original ballad by García, “Top of the Mart,” recaptures a movement of his orchestral pops tribute to the Crescent City. And “Crawfish Boil,” another original, is an upbeat blues-party set to a Mardi Gras Indian feel! Everyone gets a piece of the melody at some point of the chart. The top two parts rise to Bb or C above the staff. The structure of the piece also makes it an ideal vehicle to feature a guest soloist of any instrument who might sit in to perform with the trombones. The medley was created in honor of the retirement of García’s mentor, Prof. John Mahoney, Coordinator of Jazz Studies at Loyola University of the South from 1978-2014—and premiered without rehearsal by the composer and fellow trombonists at the May 11, 2014 celebration (providing a perspective on the perform-ability of this piece).
