Naomi Moon Siegel's poignant trombone playing is changing the way the trombone is heard and viewed. Fusing folk melodies with fantastical soundscapes and tight grooves, she performs her own style of indie-folk/pop/jazz. Her music is introspective and celebratory, intimate and full. In June 2016 she released her debut album Shoebox View, which received widespread acclaim, dubbed as marvelous, captivating & seductive by press outlets such as Downbeat Magazine, Jazziz, and allaboutjazz.com. Naomi is thrilled to be bringing her quintet featuring Wayne Horvitz, Sean Woolstenhulme, Eric Eagle and Geoff Harper
