Adriana Wagner: A trombonist's personality? Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #374

By: TOM D'ANTONI // Does the instrument you play reflect your personality? Adriana Wagner is a Jazz (mostly) trombonist. Listen to what she has to say and make up your own mind.

It’s a beautiful day in the coffeeshop, otherwise known as The Artichoke Music Café.

Next week, you know her as one of the great radio voices but do you know Marcia Hocker as a singer? She’ll be here.

Sitting across from me today is trombonist/composer/teacher Adriana Wagner. What I’m wondering is how to I not ask her what it’s like to be a female trombonist without asking her what it’s like to be a female trombonist, a question I am as sick of asking as I am guessing she is of answering. We’ll see how that goes.

She has a bunch of exciting gigs upcoming, mostly Jazz which is her first love. One is right here in this room on Sunday March 12 at Artichoke as part of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s Young Jazz Composers Alumni Concert.

Meet Adriana Wagner.
