Alan Ferber on “Quiet Confidence”

“Quiet Confidence” is the opening movement of Roots and Transitions and begins with Alan Ferber’s unaccompanied trombone. This presents the motivic idea that will be the kernel of this eight movement work.  Later in the movement, we arrive at Alan’s improvised solo, which again centers on motivic development. The restrained poise of the opening statement is answered by this powerful and soulful improvisation.
