“Trombone ecstacy.”


“Wharton’s effervescent album captivates as it ranges between the intimate and the orchestral with plenty of whimsy.”


4 1/2 stars – “From afar, this album may seem like nothing more than a novelty project, but the music successfully argues against that thinking. Jennifer Wharton’s Bonegasm blows the doors wide open for the bass trombone. The horn itself may play from the bottom, but it can certainly operate at the top of the heap.”


“The brass shines...”


“This album will knock you right out.”

Marc Myers,

3 1/2 stars – “Her gorgeous turns as a low-frequency melodist…are breathtaking, and her pitch-perfect pedal blasts anchor exciting ensemble work throughout the album.”


“Uniformly stellar.”


“Multiple flavors and clever arrangements.”


“...the enjoyment is contagious throughout Bonegasm's consistently musical second chapter.”


Album of the day  – “in the same way that sunlight can express a heady presence, all that lightness to the trombonist’s debut possesses a certain gravity, like a serious expression of idle fun.”
