Trey Henry Trey Henry

Trey Henry can't make up his mind. His resume presents itself as a variety pack of musical styles and influences. He's played with some of the finest large ensembles in the world, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Bill Holman, The Bob Florence Limited Edition, and The Gerald Wilson Orchestra. He's appeared on many Live TV shows including The Academy Awards, The Emmy Awards, American Idol and Dancing With The Stars. The list of artists that he has performed and recorded with, however, is the best indication of an ever changing and wide ranging musical journey. From Henry Mancini to Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt to Quincy Jones, Ray Charles to Maynard Ferguson and Natalie Cole to Michel Legrand, Trey has had ample opportunity to travel the musical globe. He appears on nearly 200 CDs, countless jingles and dozens of TV shows and motion pictures.

Trey first played with Christian Jacob and Ray Brinker while touring with Maynard Ferguson, and immediately felt the chemistry. Over the years they have been brought together more and more often, becoming one of the most respected trios in the Los Angeles area.

In 1999 Trey began to tour and record with two of Brazil's greatest jazz artists, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira. He recorded two CDs with them. Perpetual Emotion in 2001 and Speak No Evil in 2003.

While performing with Jack Sheldon (with Jacob and Brinker) vocalist Tierney Sutton sat in with the band. It was like a great new flavor had been added to the mix, and after the gig Trey, Ray, Christian and Tierney hung around outside the club talking about when they could all get back together.

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.
