Just stumbled on this, so I thought I would post it here for others...

Miles Anderson (LA Phil and SF Symphony) has free audio files for his two solo LPs on his website

Enjoy

Miles was very nice to me when I was but a student. He let me sit in the control room for a recording he was doing. I also appreciate him for being one of the first to realise that he didn't need a large bore horn once he was playing solo.

Does anybody know how Miles is doing now? I haven't talked to him in years. Super nice guy.

I talked to Miles on the phone a couple of years ago. He moved from Encinitas (San Diego area) to San Francisco. His wife has Parkinson's and as it progressed they moved to be nearer a therapist who specializes in treatment. Most of his time then was as a caregiver. When he moved he sent me a box of music. He hadn't been playing for years but a few years ago I talked him into playing duets for the Unitarian church he attended at a special function. He sounded great.

One of the best records I have with trombone solo playing is his "Miles Anderson plays his trombone again". I bought that record when I was in U.S the year 1988. He had a wonderful sound on that record. One of the best trombone sounds I've heard on a record.

I haven't looked at my records in years but I know I have his first one, and maybe more.
And there was a trio on CD with his wife and somebody else, but I can't remember much about that right now.

Me finding this link was kind of caused by picking up a copy of the Los Angeles Brass Quintet disc he is on which is also outstanding. That got me thinking about Miles' second solo album which my teacher in undergrad exposed me to.

The Quintet is Mario Guarneri,Thomas Stevens, Ralph Pyle, Mils and Roger Bobo
