The American wind band

In 2010 Scarecrow Press launched the series The American wind band with A history of the trombone by David M. Guion; the book is a comprehensive account of the development of the instrument from its initial form as a 14th-century medieval trumpet to its acceptance in various kinds of artistic and popular music in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Further entries in the series include The Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble and R. Winston Morris :  A 40th anniversary retrospective  by Charles A. McAdams and Richard H. Perry; and Bands of sisters :  U.S. women’s military bands during World War II  by Jill M. Sullivan.
