Mike Vax has played lead and solo trumpet with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, Clark Terry Big Bad Band, and US Navy Show Band, a jazz man for the most part. Here, he lends his scorching hot trumpet playing to the front of the Ohlone Wind Orchestra (OWO), California’s premier wind band.
‘Vaxuosity is a wonderful real-life effort, hands down. It is pure virtuosity, pure enjoyment and simply, trumpeting sunshine.’ -AllAboutJazz.com
