Ilja Reijngoud (1972, Dutch)

Ilja Reijngoud is a trombonist, conservatory-trained but mainly involved in Jazz. Despite its occasional glissandos, there’s nothing particularly noticeable in his Broadway-jazzy Where to you want to go today?, played by the Dutch trombone ensemble New Trombone Collective on Etcetera KTC 1354, part of the 3-CD set KTC 1355 (unless you particularly enjoy Broadway-jazzy pieces, of course). With that name, too bad he didn’t make an arrangement for trombone octet of Wagner’s Rheingold, I would have loved that.
