At the end of May 2014, trumpeters Ray Vega and Thomas Marriott join forces once again for the newest edition of their East-West Trumpet Summit, with pianist (and sometime trumpet player) George Colligan, bassist Phil Sparks and Matt Jorgensen on drums. The quintet is performing May 28th at Bake’s Place, for the 2014 Bellevue Jazz Festival and again May 31st at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington, WA. The band will record a new album for release on Origin Records as well. Their previous self-titled release from 2010 saw international recognition as it reached #1 on the JazzWeek radio airplay charts, and the band ventured forth to Europe and North America. It should be a fantastic pair of nights!
