The Alex LoDico Ensemble

February 13, 2011

Friday afternoon I was hustling toward the 6:26 train to Riverdale leaving from track 36 at Grand Central. I’d just got off the subway and was doing my Friday afternoon get-the-fuck-out-of-Dodge clenched jaw speed walk when I pulled up short to join the crowd that was listening to this guy absolutely shred a trombone. It was the Alex LoDico of the Alex LoDico Ensemble, with Alex LoDico on lead trombone. Man, they were great. I really had no idea you could do that with a trombone. It was hard to find a good clip of his music but here is a short piece found on youtube:

He is available for parties and weddings, presumably Bar Mitzvahs as well.

    I’d consider bat mitzvah-ing if we can get the Lo Dico to play.

    “Shredding a trombone” is a great phrase and he certainly pulls it off!
