Super Trumpets is an amazing new group gathered by Vancouver’s own Young Lion of the trumpet, Michael Kim.
To date they have performed once only at Frankie’s Nightclub and will give their third performance at Pat’s Pub on August 24th, however, a band of five of the strongest Jazz Trumpeters in Western Canada can easily put together an outstanding show by just choosing magnificent arrangements and this has been achieved.
They will feature soaring charts; mostly by Mike Barone, one of the best known West Coast big Band leaders emerging from the North Hollywood scene of the late 1960’s; by Dan Hersog; both a member of Super Trumpets and a very talented composer/leader of his own big band in Vancouver and, one composition by Juno award winning Canadian Jazz Saxophonist/ composer, Christine Jensen.
Any big band leader would love to have these five as their trumpet section.
Aside from the thrilling talents of Michael Kim and the dazzling soloing of Dan Hersog, add Derry Byrne; Vancouver’s “go to” lead trumpet player who plays with everyone in Vancouver from the biggest show productions to small studio sessions and everything in between; add Jocelyn Waugh; a great Vancouver jazz trumpeter who is very busy as both a lead player and jazz soloist and, add Brad Turner; Multiple Juno award winning, Canadian Jazz recording artist and educator.
Join us for what will be an extraordinary presentation, unique at Jazz Vespers for the majesty of the trumpet section sound and for the musical energy of this ensemble performing great jazz.
