/// Gidon Nunes Vaz - 'NIGHT LIFE'

Tritone Jazz Records | Gidon Nunes Vaz NIGHT LIFE


/// ORDER NOW! /// Gidon Nunes Vaz - 'NIGHT LIFE' (2016) ///

This second release features Gidon’s own compositions. Challenging and demanding for all players, ‘Night Life’ is a worthy follow-up to Gidon’s critically acclaimed debut. For Gidon, music’s atmosphere is inseparably connected with night life and living in a metropolis. “Whenever I went to a gig at night, the atmosphere always connected to the music I was about to play. The best musical moments were always at night in small clubs.”      

Line-up: Gidon Nunes Vaz – trumpet, Caspar van Wijk – tenorsax, Jasper van Damme – altosax, Marius van den Brink – piano, Tijs Klaassen – double bass, Jean-Clair de Ruwe – drums.

/// Gidon Nunes Vaz - 'TRIBUTE TO KD'

Tritone Jazz Records | Gidon Nunes Vaz NIGHT LIFE


/// ORDER NOW! /// Gidon Nunes Vaz - 'TRIBUTE TO KD' (2015) ///

On this debut album, trumpeter Gidon Nunes Vaz (Amsterdam, 1991) brings a tribute to legendary trumpeter Kenny Dorham (1924-1972). After two years of research on Kenny Dorham for his master thesis, Gidon decided to close this period with a musical tribute to Dorham.  “Out of gratitude, I wanted to do a tribute to KD, to honour this giant whose music and playing have been such an inspiration to me. Playing his compositions made me realize what it is I am looking for in my own playing.”                                                                               

Line-up: Gidon Nunes Vaz – trumpet, Jasper van Damme – altosax, Floris Kappeyne – piano, Tijs Klaassen – double bass, Jean-Clair de Ruwe – drums.
