Valve Trombone TBV708
Trained from an early age in his first love, jazz, some of Barry's most
memorable performances have been with such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois
Jacquet, Paquito DeRivera, and Branford Marsalis. Equally valuable in the
evolution of his style were some of his first New York gigs, with Latin giants
Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente. Starting in 1984, he toured widely with these
bands over a number of years and began an impressive series of Latin recordings
with such artists as Marc Anthony and Ricky Martin.
Barry's history as an all-around performer gives him a very personal mastery
of just about every major impulse in music making today. From Latin and pop to
jazz, R&B, and hip-hop, Barry's wide-ranging professional experiences
create his uniquely authoritative and innovative sound.
