Transcendent Trombone chronicles the life and career of Rick Stepton, one of the most gifted trombonists in jazz; and his rise from humble, blue-collar beginnings to his status as a much sought-after big band trombone player. Most inspiring is his miraculous recovery from an almost certain career ending injury. It is also a mirror of America in the latter half of the 20th century, and the struggles the nation has fought to overcome, including racism and drug use. While of greatest interest to musicians and enthusiasts, it is a book of significance to even the most casual music fan, even those who don't like jazz.
