CD Reviews

Vaughn Nark captures what is great in jazz music.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"From his days in the Airmen of Note to his climb to one of the most sought-after trumpet players in America, Vaughn Nark has captivated his audiences. His unbelievable high notes, smooth jazzy voice, and crisp sound has elevated him to stardom. His latest compilation, Somethin' Special, is pure Vaughn. His first major release, this album highlights his many talents. The opening piece, Softly As In A Morning Sunrise, captures you from the beginning, with notes piercing the stratosphere. My Funny Valentine & She Was Too Good To Me proves his ablility in the vocal category. The famous Dizzy Gillespie tune, Fiesta Mojo, gets a powerful Vaughn touch. An equally famous Gillespie tune ,Tanga, proves Vaughn's ability with ballads, as he adds that ear-piercing high trumpet with spectacular beauty. Vaughn even proves his worth with a scat session on his own number, Quotes and Notes. A spectacular finale to the album calls for Freddie Hubbard's powerful Povo. Vaughn Nark has been well-known in the jazz industry for years, but he has just made himself known nationally. Be looking for him in the years to come!"
