“The enthusiasm from the musicians and the audience was electric and I left the show with the rhythms ringing in my ears and my heart.” —All About Jazz
A veteran of the bands of Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Louie Ramirez, and dozens of others, Vermont’s own Grammy-winning trumpet master Ray Vega performs Latin Jazz with lockstep vigor and fiery gusto. He’s performed and recorded with some of jazz’s top legends, including Joe Henderson, Lionel Hampton, and Arturo Sandoval, and has crossed over to other musical spheres in collaborations with Paul Simon and contemporary classical composer Osvaldo Golijov. Growing up immersed in the musically vibrant Bronx, Vega plays a unique brew of styles, each of them dispatched with aplomb.
