Romm and Vax use this occasion not only to remind us of their great impact on the world of music, but also to showcase their versatility.
—International Trumpet Guild Journal
The powerhouse trumpet playing throughout this project is a consistent joy, making one hope for future Vax-Romm ‘collaborations.’
A very remarkable project
Mike Vax and Ron Romm have been friends for almost fifty years. They first met when Romm was in the fledgling group Canadian Brass and Vax was playing lead trumpet for the Stan Kenton Orchestra back in 1971. Their paths have crossed many times over the years, but they had never performed together until the recording session for their new album Collaboration. They bring together both the classical and jazz idioms in perfect harmony, since both have had a multitude of musical experience in many different styles of playing.
