Performance Review: SlideAttack


Slide Attack is a seasoned collection of five fantastic musicians fluent in the language of swing, blues, modern jazz and a wide spectrum of genres. Boldly led by two lead trombonists, Alan Goidel and Howard Levy, the band fills the room with the brassy harmonies of well-chosen jazz arrangements, both old and new. At the 9th Note Jazz Supper Club in Stamford, Connecticut on August 3, 2016, this group gave the audience a sufficient helping of each instrument that also included Paul Mariconda - piano, Chuck Zeuren - drums, and Dr. Lyn Christe - bass.
