Glenn Ferris

It’s difficult to find the words to embrace the fertile career of Glenn Ferris, artistic chameleon, a major figure on the contemporary Jazz Scene, high priest of Trombone Attitude, eclectic and bantered…

In the early 60s, success was far from assured. While the American Jazz Scene was blasting horns all over the country, a kid in Hollywood, born in 1950, secretly dreamed of grafting the trombone’s glissando onto the growls and caresses of that magic trumpet +sax equation. To the uninitiated the instrument was an ungainly contraption offering no opportunity for grace or style. At a concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic (managed by his uncle, an oboist), Glenn Ferris fell instantly in love with his future instrument of choice. He was eight years old. He started learning the Trombone and at the same time studied classical music. 1964 saw the turning point, when he heard the latest record from the saxophonist Eric Dolphy Last Date He moved straight into high gear, focussing on Jazz theory, improv and composition; his teacher, the massive and much missed trumpeter Don Ellis (who died in 1978, at the age of 44, and still famous today for his great original soundtrack for the film “French Connection” – 1971), accelerated his progress, making him Trombone Soloïst of the Don Ellis Big Band as early as 1966.
