About the track

Continuing the tradition of fabled trumpet duo sessions that have included Fats Navarro & Howard McGhee, and Freddie Hubbard & Woody Shaw, two of the more dynamic and versatile trumpeters anywhere, New Yorker Ray Vega & Thomas Marriott from Seattle, make up the front line of this power-packed quintet as they take a joyous ride through a collection of jazz classics and original compositions. Featuring the rhythm section of New York pianist Travis Shook, and the Seattle team of drummer Matt Jorgensen and bassist Jeff Johnson, the band tears through standards like "It's You or No One" and several originals, that are sure to excite the general jazz audience as much as fans of the trumpet. Far from a "cutting session," this recording showcases the sensibilities and styles of both coasts of the U.S. and how they can partner to cover a good deal of stylistic territory while remaining both lyrical and exciting. "...this fabulous recording is a shout out to the jazz trumpet gods...Vega pulls out all the stops..." - New York Latino.
