The Vaché Brothers Quintet At The Jazz Corner

Read "The Vaché Brothers Quintet At The Jazz Corner" reviewed by Martin McFie

Allan and Warren Vache' Quintet The Jazz Corner Hilton Head, SC March 1-2, 2019 Brothers, Allan Vache' and Warren Vache', brought their quintet, their dry wit and, their brotherly banter to The Jazz Corner for their annual visit. Allan played clarinet in the style and with an attack reminiscent of early Benny Goodman, with whom he played as their careers briefly overlapped. Allan reached up for pure, clear notes on clarinet, which he hit and ...

Warren Vache Quintet: Warren Vache Quintet Remembers Benny Carter

Read "Warren Vache Quintet Remembers Benny Carter" reviewed by John Ephland

There's lots of life to this recording. Veteran trumpeter Warren Vache knows a thing or two about an old friend, mentor Benny Carter. With The Warren Vache Quintet Remembers Benny Carter we take a step back in time even as we venture forth into the present. A present that finds cornetist Vache's style and personage slightly at odds with that goofy-looking guy with the lid shaking hands with Carter for the cover of this release. It's a remarkable transformation for ...

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

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

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 ...

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

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

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 ...

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

Read "Don't Look Back" reviewed by Edward Blanco

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, ...

Warren Vache: Dream Dancing

Read "Dream Dancing" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

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 ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
