Description:How many times have you heard a trombone duo since Jay and Kai? Sliding Hammers is a fresh trombone duo from Sweden, consisting of two sisters, Karin Hammer and Mimmi Pettersson Hammer. In an album honoring the great Jay and Kai, the sisters more than hold their own, showing amazing technique, powerful blowing and perfect harmonies.

More than half of the program consists of original compositions, either by the Hammer sisters or the talented pianist Mathias Algotsson, whose contribution is significant.

As aptly stated in the Japanese liner notes, when two trombones are put together, they almost become a different instrument, significantly more exciting and attractive. The compositions are very modern, but the band's approach is very straight ahead. This is a very enjoyable, swinging album. The sisters even show off their vocal talent on a few tunes.

Recorded March 10-12, 2006 at SAMI Studios in Sweden. This Japanese CD released by Spice of Life under a license from Prophone Records.
