Review:

“Gernot Wolfgang’s Leaps and Bounds is a 15 minute long single movement for trombone and piano. The name refers to the way the melodic material is full of wide intervals. Again there were jazz echoes with the opening evoking some rather cool jazz. The piece uses a series of episodes with the composer alternating types of material, lyrical trombone writing with subtle rhythmic piano underpinnings, lively interchanges between the two instruments,  mute trombone with cool funky accompaniment. Whilst not to the fore, you feel that jazz/funk elements are never far away.”
