Joe Alessi quotes

Andrew Hitz, the tuba player in the Boston Brass, recently compiled a list of brilliant quotes taken from master classes given by Joe Alessi, principal trombonist in the New York Philharmonic.  I had to share via the links below.

You can hear Joe Alessi’s recording of my trombone concerto, “Harvest,” on this page (and also on iTunes).


Andrew Hitz says

Thanks for the links John! Every time I hear Joe either play or speak about music I learn more than I can process. Not sure there is another player on any instrument that I feel more lucky to have played with than him.

Thanks again.
