Warren Vache Warren Vache

Vaché is a supremely accomplished, versatile and rare performer. He has been astounding audiences worldwide for decades with his superb cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn stylings. Through live performances and recordings, along with stage, screen, radio and television appearances, Warren conveys incredible warmth through his burnished tone and intelligent improvisations.

He has performed and recorded with such luminaries as: Benny Goodman, Rosemary Clooney, Benny Carter, Hank Jones, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Ruby Braff and Bobby Short to name but a few.

He can also be found in the company of such leading contemporaries as: Phil Woods, Jon Faddis, Terrell Stafford, Howard Alden, Jessie Davis, Alvin Queen, Brian Lemon, Tony Coe, Alan Barnes, Richard Wyands, Bill Charlap, Harry Allen, John Allred and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra...the list is a virtual “Who's who” in Jazz, spanning every style in the history of the music.

Warren Vaché has performed at every major jazz venue and festival throughout the globe from club dates at Condon's and the Blue Note to the Newport Jazz Festival, the North Sea Jazz Festival and Perugia in Italy, including concerts at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Vienna Opera, and the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Coupling a beautiful tone with a chance-taking style, Warren utilizes the complete range of the jazz vocabulary. His influences include: Louis Armstrong, Ruby Braff, “Pee Wee” Erwin ( with whom he studied for many years ), Roy Eldridge, Bobby Hackett, Clifford Brown, Blue Mitchell, and Billy Butterfield - from this group of extraordinary musicians, among others, Mr. Vaché has coalesced his own inimitable style that defies categorization. Pianist and composer Jim McNeely was heard to say: “Every chorus he plays is like a lesson in the history of the trumpet.”

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.
