A female trombonist, playing in The Ray Charles Orchestra? Not until Sarah Morrow

Charles had been playing a concert with the Dayton Philharmonic when he first heard Morrow play. His reaction? “Who is that trombone player? I want to hire him.”  One week later, he hired Morrow, and she toured with the legendary Charles globally for two years.  (Read more in The New York Times ). 

Since then? She’s performed extensively with a veritable who’s who of artists, has composed and produced multiple recordings, written for musical icons and has produced/arranged music for major Hollywood film.  Most recently this “SuperStar of the Trombone” collaborated with Dr. John, the Nitetripper as musical arranger and producer of his recent CD, Ske Dat De Dat…The Spirit of Satch! debuting #1 Billboard, #1 CJC, and #1 on iTunes concurrently

Artists she’s worked with include: Ray Charles, Funk Legend Bootsy Collins, the Duke Ellington Orchestra, Van Morrison, Blind Boys of Alabama, The funky Drummers of James Brown (Clyde Stubblefield and Jabo Starks), drummer Bernard Purdie, Bonnie Raitt, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Anthony Hamilton, free form saxophonist David Murray, organist Rhoda Scott, tenor sax legends Pee Wee Ellis and Hal “Cornbread” Singer, Cuban rapper Telmary, Rickie Lee Jones, the American All-Stars in Paris, Mingus alumni Ted Curson and Ricky Ford, French star Anne Ducros, trumpeters Arturo Sandoval, Terence Blanchard, Marcus Belgrave and Nicholas Payton, Branford Marsalis, Pianist Robert Glasper, drummer Chris “Daddy” Dave, DJ Jahi Sundance, underground hip hop sensation Mike Ladd, cultural icon Dr. John the Nite tripper, and many others…as well as with her own bands.
