James Hall

James Hall is a trombonist and composer from Nebraska based in Brooklyn. A versatile musician, his projects have spanned jazz, classical, Latin, and popular music in the US and Europe.

As a composer and bandleader, James was named a finalist in the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Competition, won three ASCAPlus Awards for composition, and was a featured performer/composer at the 2012 Chelsea Music Festival. He has appeared in the pages of Rolling Stone Magazine as a member of Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, and has recorded and toured internationally with Postmodern Jukebox. James' trombone playing earned third place, runner-up, and honorable mention in the Antti Rissanen, J.J. Johnson, and Carl Fontana International Jazz Trombone Competitions, respectively.

James' first CD as a composer/bandleader was released in October 2013. Entitled "Soon We Will Not Be Here," it set contemporary poetry to third-stream chamber music. His sophomore release, "Lattice," an instrumental jazz album, weaves alto flute and trombone lines in dense counterpoint heavily inspired by Herbie Hancock's 1968 "Speak Like a Child."
