  Dan Jenkins Music has plenty of great music to enjoy — and more to come

Despite the restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic on the wider musical world, composer and trombonist Dan Jenkins continues to keep himself busy preparing new works for his recently launched music publishing company, Dan Jenkins Music.

Nearly Salsa time

He told 4BR: "Firstly there's a new piece on the way called 'Dance Suite'. The idea is from Warlock's 'Capriol Suite', but my six 'dances' are half modern, not all Elizabethan.

There's a 'Gigue', a dangerous 'Tango', 'Pavane', 'Ecossaise', a lilting 'Sarabande', and to finish, a rousing party 'Salsa'. I haven't finished the party yet, but there's plenty of time to get it right!"

Audio files

Meanwhile, the audio files for his 'Reaching for the Clouds' — a complete trombone recital of eight new pieces for the instrument with piano accompaniment is now available to check out.

In addition there are some fantastic works to enjoy — from his 'Elements' suite from trombone and piano


to 'Czardas for Trombone' — a great 'run around extravaganza' for a quartet of trombones inpisred by the famous Monti violin solo.
