This is trumpeter Ray Vega and Thomas Marriott who have a great project called EAST/WEST TRUMPET SUMMIT. Ray is one of those people who you meet and instantly have a ‘thing’ with.  He is just such a warm and welcoming cat and when he plays the trumpet it is some serious shit.  Thomas is equally as burning and am happy to call him a friend after all these years of him coming up and playing the club. We’re lucky to have him on the West Coast.  Ray Vega recently had a heart attack and has had a tough year in general but I’m happy to report that although the next year will be a tough recovery etc. he is doing well and is in good spirits.

The weekend they came up was a blast. It was a couple of years ago and Vega’s stories alone made it all worthwhile!
