“Basically he’s the go-to cross-genre horn-blowing utility man of the Philly scene” (John Vettese). Vince Tampio is a professional trumpeter, arranger, composer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Philadelphia, PA. Although firmly rooted in jazz, he is comfortable with a wide variety of genres including rock, soul, funk, folk, classical, and electronic.
Vince’s original music has been described as “a contemporary instance of fusion done right,” and whose “nontraditional instrumentation maintains a spacious environment that proves ideal for a set brimming with imaginative, drawn-out improvisation” (Matthew Aquiline). His latest album, Sound Plan, is an instrumental jazz album that incorporates Psychedelic Rock and Electronic Dance Music (EDM) while juxtaposing acoustic tones with synthesized breadth. Sound Plan was preceded by Live at PafA (2017), Syzygy (2014), and Syzygy: Remix (2014). Vince is currently self producing three more solo albums. One unreleased composition was recently featured in The Philadelphia Real Book Volume 1.
