Mi újság? - Tommy Vig
Ma hajnali 3 óra 8 perckor az alábbi e-mailt kaptam a 2006-ban 50 év után Amerikából hazatért vibrafonostól, Tommy Vig-től!
Tommy Vig is 82. To him the word „jazz” means something special: that explains the title of his current group, featuring Csuhaj Barna Tibor, Jeszenszky György and Zsoldos Béla:
This quartet will first appear at the Budapest Jazz Club on Saturday night, October 17 at 7 pm and 8:30 pm. Mia Kim will also be featured on vocals - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfgaMnvwAxo -
Tommy’s new compositions will all be memorializing the 1956 Revolution, of which he was part -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qYx6O94yZ4 -
escaped to America on November 18, 1956: he wanted to live in a place where talent and ambitions mattered and no Communists would tell him how to play music. (Stan Kenton ordered compositions from Tommy, which were performed at the MUSIC CENTER PAVILION by the Neophonic Orchestra.)
He came home in 2006 and today he and Mia (joyfully married for over 50 years) are very happy in Budapest!
