Genres: Jazz , Trumpet

Description

Hailed as "a great writer and a terrific trumpet player" by legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach, and said by renowned jazz artist Dave Douglas to be “one of the finest young trumpeters”, Tony Glausi has established his voice in the music industry as an international award-winning trumpeter, keyboardist, composer, arranger, and producer.

Among other accolades, Tony won first prize in the 2017 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Solo Competition, first prize in the jazz division of the 2017 ITG International Trumpet Competition, and first prize in the jazz division of the 2014 National Trumpet Competition. Tony has been recognized in two separate issues of Downbeat Jazz & Blues Magazine for outstanding improvised solos and compositions. He was the sole recipient of the 2016-17 Laurie Frink Career Grant, an award given every other year to a young brass player in honor of Laurie’s legacy as an incomparably inspiring pedagogue, mentor, and friend. Tony has also had the unique privilege of engaging in private studies with Wynton Marsalis, one of his greatest heroes and influences.

Tony Glausi grew up in a musical family—his mother and all four of his grandparents were professional musicians in varying capacities—and was exposed to music of all genres, developing an affinity for gospel hymns, classical music, jazz, R&B, and hip-hop. At a very young age he taught himself to play his favorite melodies on the piano by ear and later mastered these abilities through advanced studies in piano performance and theory. A trumpeter and composer by the age of ten, it was later in high school when Tony began to focus on jazz and improvisation.

Playing over one hundred shows last year and having already recorded on more than twenty-five albums, Tony currently maintains a full schedule as an active performer and recording artist. As a trumpeter, he leads his own jazz ensembles, everything from a straight-ahead quintet to his nine-piece jazz/funk fusion band. As a keyboardist, he co-leads Red Pants Trio and plays in other R&B groups. As a composer and arranger, Tony draws inspiration from his earliest musical influences while also channeling current trends in the music industry. He has written works for small and large jazz ensembles, various chamber ensembles, pop and hip-hop groups, and several short films and TV web series. His pieces have been commissioned on over a dozen occasions to be performed and recorded by numerous world-class musicians.
