Cuong Vu: Vu-Tet

Read "Vu-Tet" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo nuovo lavoro del trombettista Cuong Vu parte in maniera decisamente misteriosa, con i timbri scuri e l’incedere lento, con il piglio della navigazione solitaria. Un viaggio sospeso dentro ad un B Movie di fantascienza ambientato nei territori polverosi di un pianeta bluastro che non è stato ancora scoperto. Al centro della scena sta l’elettronica con ...

Cuong Vu: Vu-tet

Read "Vu-tet" reviewed by Budd Kopman

One way to gauge the strength of a jazz player, especially one who also composes, is to be able identify his or her vision regardless of the changes that occur in the output over time. Does he or she have an attitude, a voice, or a musical message that draws one in, possibly challenging assumptions along ...

Cuong Vu: Vu-tet

Read "Vu-tet" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

It's a funny sensation of displacement, the “Vu effect." One moment, you're embraced by a warm and almost New Age-y sense of wholeness. This is the case of leader Cuong Vu's airy, ethereal trumpet playing on “Intro" or “Now I Know." In the same vein, bassist Stomu Takeishi borrows liberally from Jaco Pastorious' trick bag (e.g. ...

Cuong Vu: Vu-Tet

Read "Vu-Tet" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

One could wonder why in the world these people are wiring up their trumpets, instruments that, acoustically, make such beautiful sounds. Ingrid Jensen plugs in her horn, notably (and beautifully) on The “Pretty Road" from Maria Schneider's Sky Blue (ArtistShare, 2007) and Natsuki Tamura on Hada Hada (Libra Records, 2003) sucks up enough electrons to keep ...

Cuong Vu: Vu-Tet

Read "Vu-Tet" reviewed by Troy Collins

Vietnamese-born trumpet phenomenon Cuong Vu has been melding electronic soundscapes and rock-oriented structures with jazz improvisation since his debut, Bound (Omnitone, 2000). Following in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed It's Mostly Residual (ArtistShare, 2005), Vu continues to explore the fertile territory between electronic and acoustic music. Joined by fellow New York Downtown scene ...

Cuong Vu: Vu-Tet

Read "Vu-Tet" reviewed by John Kelman

On Vu-Tet, his follow-up to It's Mostly Residual (ArtistShare, 2005), trumpeter Cuong Vu continues to mine similar turf, ranging from the deeply lyrical to the aggressively hardcore. But with considerable touring under the belt of his regular working trio, featuring bassist Stomu Takeishi and drummer Ted Poor--with and without Vu-Tet's guest saxophonist/clarinetist Chris Speed--there's an emerging ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
