Yamaha Trombone Artist and University of South Florida School of Music Professor Tom Brantley has released a new CD, titled Obsessed with Treasure, on the Bearclaw Records label. The CD has received praise from John Fleming of the St. Petersburg Times, who wrote: "Tom Brantley, a trombonist par excellence who teaches at the University of South Florida, teams with composer and percussionist David Gluck of the music faculty at SUNY-Purchase in an exhilarating mix of jazz and pop, rock and classical. In 12 superbly engineered tracks, the duo and a host of guest artists range from salsa (Obsessed with Treasure) to bossa nova (Painted Mermaid) to an infectious performance of rhythm and blues icon Johnny Otis' Cold Shot. Why we like it: You could call the Gluck-Brantley style surrealistic (after their Salvador Dali-inspired work Lobster Telephone) or just plain soulful, but whatever their sound is, it has the bracing slap of complete originality."During the 2007 International Trombone Festival, Tom presented a clinic about the project and the unique process involved with recording multiple tracks of trombones played by a single player.Visit to order "Obsessed With Treasure" online.For more information about Tom Brantley and David Gluck visit www.rhythm-brass.comVisit Signature Sounds, the Official Artist Publication of the Band and Orchestral Division at
