 To Whom It May Concern - Vitaly Golovnev

 TIP1105 Released January 20, 2009

 

 “The talented, inventive trumpeter and composer Vitaly Golovnev makes passionate music 

 on To Whom It May Concern.  The trumpet powerhouse was a semi-finalist at the 2007 

 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition.  An artist whose inspirations

 include Horace Silver and Booker Little, Golovnev seeks to make “straight-ahead jazz of

 today.”  This is a stellar debut CD.”  Zan Stewart August, 2008
