He moved to New York in 2002 to pursue his master’s degree in TESOL at The City College of the City University of New York (CCNY). Meanwhile, he began studying acoustic bass with legendary musicians, including Cecil McBee, Victor Venegas, Andy González, and John Schaeffer (former Principal Bassist for the New York Philharmonic). After receiving his master's degree, Vincent was accepted into the undergraduate jazz program at CCNY, where he studied with the world-renowned bassist, John Patitucci. Vincent received his bachelor's degree in Jazz Performance from CCNY in 2008. In the summer of 2010, he graduated from the master’s program of Jazz Performance at NYU, where he studies with Brian Lynch, Martin Wind, Billy Drummond, Don Frieman and Ralph Alessi.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
