Rick Trolsen & Gringo do Choro (brazilian latin)

Lobby Atrium of The Ogden Museum of Southern Art's Stephen Goldring Hall

Largely self-taught, Rick began playing trombone at the age of twelve. After studying with Phil Wilson at Berklee College of Music, he volunteered three years of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, stationed in New Orleans. From 1991 to 1998 he led the jazz/rock group ”Neslort” as a vehicle for his original compositions. A favorite for four consecutive years at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, “Neslort” featured some of the finest musicians in town, and recorded two CD’s.

In 2003, Rick traveled to Rio de Janeiro to record “Gringo Do Choro”, which features primarily Choro music from the early part of the 20th century, with a few Bossas and Samba's thrown in. It wasn’t until after hurricane Katrina that he recorded the music of New Orleans. In 2006 & 2007, he released “New Orleans Lullaby” and “Sunrise on Bourbon Street.” As a freelance trombonist, Rick has enjoyed featured performances with all walks of the local music life, and has proved to be versatile and at ease with contemporary and traditional jazz, blues, reggae, big bands, show music, avante garde, and club dates.
