Interview with Trumpeter Cuong Vu

By March 28, 2011

Follow me on:

Trumpeter and composer Cuong Vu's music is known for its symbiosis of composition and improvisation. Vu's electronically distorted tone seems inextricable from his compositions, which draw from rock, classical, and electronica. However, on his 2011 album, Leaps of Faith (Origin Records), he and his "4-tet," composed of drummer Ted Poor, and bassists Stomu Takeishi and Luke Bergman, tackle some standards from the jazz repertoire and songs by George Harrison and Jackson Browne.

Douglas Detrick spoke to Vu about his departure from original repertoire. Read the interview!
