Warren Vache: Jubilation: Live in Bern Switzerland at Marians Jazzroom

Read "Jubilation: Live in Bern Switzerland at Marians Jazzroom" reviewed by

Warren Vache is one of just a few active cornet players, though he proves to be a lot more wide-ranging in his choice of songs than the late great Ruby Braff (while also possessing a greater sense of humor). Having studied with Pee Wee Erwin, Vache gained early experience playing with Benny Goodman, Vic Dickenson and Bob Wilber. He has recorded over three dozen albums as a leader and is a regular on the jazz party circuit. These 2007 performances at the renowned Marians Jazzroom in Bern, Switzerland pair the cornetist with trombonist John Allred, a jazz party favorite who ...

Warren Vache / Allan Vache: Remember (Ms. Vache's Boys)

Read "Remember (Ms. Vache's Boys)" reviewed by

The Vaché brothers, cornetist Warren and clarinetist Allan, grew up in New Jersey in a hotbed of revivalist trad jazz. Their father, Warren Vaché Sr., was a bassist and writer-editor (a bio of Pee Wee Erwin, the early Chicago-style trumpeter, and editor of Jersey Jazz, a newsletter) and one of the Jersey neo-traditionalists who helped kick-off revivals with the annual Pee Wee Russell Memorial Stomp. But while the brothers were steeped in trad jazz--an experience that has given them a deep appreciation of melodic improvisation--and Allan spent long periods working in trad bands in San Antonio and Orlando, this 1998 ...

Warren Vache and the Scottish Ensemble: Don't Look Back

Read "Don't Look Back" reviewed by

A veteran trumpeter with an extensive resume that includes stage, radio and television performances, Warren Vaché filled a void in his three-decade career with the recoding of Don't Look Back. Having once stated that “Everybody really serious about jazz music dreams of making a recording with a string ensemble, Vaché accomplishes this long-held desire by joining forces with the Scottish Ensemble, a twelve-piece virtuoso string group that once specialized in only baroque music. Playing against the backdrop of the strings, his trumpet and cornet convey a warm and pleasant mood associated with a classical-jazz atmosphere.

Warren Vache: Dream Dancing

Read "Dream Dancing" reviewed by

Cornetist Warren Vache has been a mainstay of the New York jazz scene since the mid-1970s. He frequently appeared and recorded with Scott Hamilton's combo and developed a lengthy recording contract with Concord Records as well as appearing on the local club circuit. Vache is perhaps the prime mover in the stimulation of the continued interest and growth of post-war small combo swing and prior to his own groups worked with Benny Goodman and Kenny Davern. Most recently his continued work with Arbors and prolific past five years with Nagel-Heyer Records have been evident.

Warren Vache: Warren Plays Warren

Read "Warren Plays Warren"

In my estimation, Harry Warren is the most underrated songwriter of the 20th Century. While very successful, he is less famous than his songs (“Lullaby of Broadway”, “There Will Never Be Another You”) or the people who sang them (Jolson, among many others.) While Gershwin and Coward became celebrities, Warren stayed in the shadows, quietly building an immense catalog. The songs are still here, and in the right hands are a gold mine. In an intimate setting with stellar rhythm, Warren Vache fills these tunes with joy, charm, and an unstoppable swing. It’s a great feeling, and the two Warrens ...
