Bone Supremacy launched

A brand new jazz trombone group will be featured at London's 100 Club in May. The Bone Supremacy, a top professional group of five trombones and rhythm section, was launched earlier this month at another London jazz club. Unusually they have named four of the trombonists and will use a guest player for each gig.

They are proud to continue in the tradition of the popular 70's and 80's trombone band Five-a-Slide that featured the likes of Roy Williams, Campbell Burnap and Pete Strange. The band's library was also penned by the Pete Strange, whose surviving wife has provided exclusively to the new group.

Have a listen to the band's latest tracks and full date-list at their website:
