I must have been hiding in a hole for a long time. I've just started to listen to Mr Vache's playing....what musicality and a tone to die for? Not that it matters, I'm sure he'd sound great on a hose pipe, but what's he been playing? And what should I try and listen to for him at his best?
Xmas is coming up and I'm getting my CD list ready!
Warren Vache is one of my favorite jazz cornetists. Some good albums to look into IMO are:
Warren Plays Warren
Live in Hamburg
Mrs. Vache's Boys
Horn of Plenty (especially recommended)
What Is There to Say?
You should also check out:
"2Gether" with Bill Charlap (Nagel-Heyer)
and any of his albums on Zephyr (http://www.zephyrrecords.co.uk/)
Also, Warren will have a new album out this spring on Arbors with
Bill Charlap and Harry Allen.
Yes, Warren can basically grab any horn and mouthpiece around and still sound like Warren Vache (I've heard him do this at Dillon Music - any horn he pulls off the wall and any mouthpiece from the "used" box - it's amazing!)
I heard him in Edinburgh a couple of years ago. He was using Conn V1 trumpet and flugel. On the recordings he did with Derek Watkins he used a Smith Watkins Cornet.
