Warren Vache & Brian Kellock Duo

EDINBURGH JAZZ & BLUES FESTIVAL

Warren Vache & Brian Kellock Duo

The trumpeter and cornetist is one of a kind. No-one else today can play the classic jazz repertoire, the music of trumpeters from Louis Armstrong to Clifford Brown, with such love, passion and emotion. Vache can be hard and forthright; he can be a warm embrace, but he's always telling you his inner feelings, and he's the most spontaneous of players. Pianist, Kellock is his match in keeping the music honest, and playing brilliantly.
