Blowpipes Trombone Trio

The Blowpipes

The Blowpipes

Founded in London in 1993, The Blowpipes Trombone Trio is where trombone poetry started. Poetry was included at many of the trio’s gigs, and a couple of poems were set to music on The Blowpipes’ album, Zenoria. The newly-relaunched band sometimes¬†resumes this role, acting as an occasional “house band” for trombone poetry.

This improvising/composing trio plays traditional music, classical pieces, and all kinds of jazz. The repertoire is enormous, running to well over 700 arrangements in a great range of genres, and includes many original compositions written especially for the trio.

The Blowpipes are available for gigs, recordings, broadcasts, festivals, launches, lunches, weddings and funerals.
