Cuong Vu - Trumpet a-go-go
Just listening back to some Pat Metheny (who has always made me go weak at the knees) and reminded just how great his sometime-trumpet player Cuong Vu is. A bit hard to locate any decent files or vids but there are some samples on his web space from his latest solo effort, Vu Tet, of which Solitary Confinment has some extraodinary playing. His MySpace of course has a bunch of stuff and there is some decent stuff on his MySpace Blog which also shows off Cuong bassist, Stomu Takeishi: a fine player.
