One of the classiest human beings on the scene, Boscarino's inherent sweetness of personality belies a furious, frenetic approach to the trombone. He plays higher than trumpets for pay, and higher than that for fun, and we like to leave him alone and unmic'd against the entire band, forcing him to be even more insistent than usual. You can hear him in full throat on the climaxes of the words, they fail to come. and this is not the answer, iv. the hypocrite and the hope. - he doesn't disappoint.
