Album Review

The undated music on this CD features the remarkable trumpet virtuoso Vaughn Nark with the Airmen of Note, probably from around the 1985-1991 period. Nark is an explosive player who is certainly not shy to hit screaming high notes, so one has to be prepared for his constant blasts. This disc collects together some of his main features with the Air Force big band including "Lorraine," "Red Clay," "It Could Happen to You," "Cherokee," and even "White Christmas." Mike Crotty provided the majority of the arrangements, and even though the other musicians are not well known, they are first-class professionals. Since Nark is the star throughout, this is a CD most highly recommended to trumpet students who do not get discouraged too easily!


Born: 1956

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

Vaughn Nark devoted almost 20 years to playing trumpet for the Airmen of Note, the distinguished jazz band of the U.S. Air Force. During his time with the ensemble from the early '70s until 1993, when he retired, he held the positions of jazz trumpeter and lead trumpeter. His outstanding service and musicianship was acknowledged with the Meritorious Service Medal, which was conferred by order of the President. A fine example of Nark's trumpet playing can be heard on the Airmen of Note CD Flying High....
