The Trombone Player is the backbone of the band, especially marching bands and pep bands. This is partly because of the greater skill involved in being able to find the proper notes along the unmarked or non-graduated slide, unlike other musicians who rely on strict fingering charts or valve combinations. As a result of this greater ability, the Trombone player is also generally a better musician and will frequently go on to lead his own orchestra like Glenn Miller and Count Basie.
1) Damn dude, did you hear how totally superb those trombone players were? They completely carried the band.

2) After paying his dues on lesser instruments like the baritone and tuba, James felt he finally reached that level of experience necessary to play the only real low brass instrument that mattered and become a trombone player.
