A Mighty Leap

In his 2011 CD “Leaps of Faith,” recorded in 2010 at the Chapel Performance Space, Jazz Studies chair Cuong Vu demonstrates the inimitable tone and atmospheric approach to his instrument and his music that have made him again and again a New York Times Critic’s Pick. Featuring transformations of tunes from the Great American Songbook as well as three original works, “Leaps of Faith” has received favorable reviews in a variety of important jazz and mainstream publications. Vu is joined on this release by longtime collaborators Ted Poor (drums) and Stomu Takeshi (bass) as well as faculty colleague Luke Bergman (bass).
