Kadesh Flow

Gerald Trimble & Jambaroque

The viola da gamba is a versatile bowed and fretted instrument with ancient roots in Moorish Spain and Renaissance and Baroque Europe. As much a jazz or rock improvisor as an interpreter of ancient music, Gerald Trimble sails the viola da gamba out of its accepted role in historical performance and into a much deserved role as a world instrument. His latest CD, Uncharted: A Viola da Gamba Adventure, from MSR Classics, chronicles his musical voyages and has received praise in the US and Europe. Photo: Jim Barcus
