Even casual Vaché listeners seem able to discern that they are in the presence of something special. It may be the beauty of the ballad tone quality, the unique restating of a melody or the driving energy of an up-tempo singer.
Noted DownBeat writer and jazz historian Dan Morgenstern summed up Vaché’s position accurately: “It speaks well for jazz, that music of continuing surprises, that it is still capable of producing unclassifiable players like Warren Vaché, who find new and personal ways of using aspects of the jazz tradition that others may have overlooked or neglected, or never been exposed to. Eclectic he may be … but uncommitted he most certainly is not.”
Warren has spent years playing with such greats as Rosemary Clooney, Benny Goodman, Hank Jones, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Bobby Short, and Benny Carter
