I enjoyed a conversation with bass trombonist Gerry Pagano on Wednesday afternoon. Since our conversation was recorded at the studios of KWMU, you’ll be able to hear some of what we said during the live broadcast of the September 19 Gala concert on St. Louis Public Radio. I don’t see the need to distinguish our discussion as an “interview,” because Pagano is such an affable and fun guy to talk with. I gave him room to plug the upcoming Live in the Commons concert, featuring the Trombones of the St. Louis Symphony at the Public Media Commons on Olive in the Grand Center district. Even if that part of our conversation gets cut, I’m plugging it here. According to Pagano, all music sounds better when played by four trombones. Go to the show and you’ll hear proof, Monday, September 28 at 7:30pm. It’s outside and it’s free.
