Scott Forrey has played trumpet with jazz, funk, Latin, and avant-garde bands for more that 25 years. He was both a student and faculty member at Berklee college of Music in the 1980s, where he studied improvisation with saxophonist George Garzone and bassist Miroslav Vitous.
Among his interests are composition, arranging, and scoring film, digital recording technology, and collaborating with poets and other artists. In 1999 Scott contributed to the score of the independent British feature film MOTION, directed by Tom Clay. Vector Trio represents the culmination of years of exploration into live improvisation, musical experimentation, and electronics.
About the Vector Trio
Vector Trio began life in 1996 simply as Vector, an improvisational avant-garde funk septet.
In 2002 Vector became Vector Trio. The musicians began making use of electronics, including looping devices and effects processors, to expand the possibilities of the trio. Their work to date is showcased in their all-original CDs--Plot Twist (2004), Live in DC (2005), and Paths Unknown (2006).
Vector Trio is a project designed to explore freedom and possibility in three voices, contextualized by cultural disharmony.
