Under the direction of Dr. Daniel F. Bakos, the UWG Jazz Ensemble hosts Los Angeles jazz trombonist Bob McChesney. Steven Loewy of the All Music Guide to Jazz pays homage to McChesney as “a technical monster on the trombone, someone who is so advanced that others merely quake in his path.” No wonder he receives such lofty acclaim. McChesney can be heard on CDs with everyone from Ray Charles and Rod Stewart to Natalie Cole and Diana Krall.


His television credits range from The Simpsons to Futurama while his film credits meander from Mystic River to Space Jam. McChesney’s collaboration with legendary comedian Steve Allen produced No Laughing Matter. In his review, Tom Smith says it all: "There are times when hearing him is like hearing the trombone played for the first time."
