Tony Glausi Group
Hailed as “a great writer and a terrific trumpet player” by legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach, and said by jazz trumpet player Dave Douglas to be “one of the finest young trumpeters”, Tony Glausi is establishing his voice in the music industry as an award-winning trumpeter, keyboardist, composer, arranger, and producer with a distinct story to tell.
Among other accolades, Tony placed 1st in the Jazz Division of the National Trumpet Competition in March of 2014 and has been recognized and awarded by Downbeat Jazz & Blues Magazine for several outstanding improvised solos and for his small ensemble composition, Something to be Remembered For—the opening track from his debut record, Identity Crisis. He is also the honorary recipient of the 2016-17 Laurie Frink Career Grant and has engaged in private studies with Wynton Marsalis.
Playing over one hundred shows last year, and having recorded on nearly two dozen released records, Tony currently maintains a full schedule as an active performer and recording artist, working first-hand with musical greats such as virtuoso jazz pianist George Colligan, reggae legend Norma Fraser, jazz saxophonist Todd DelGiudice, and British indie pop-star Ruth Theodore. Tony also leads his own jazz quintet and nine-piece funk band, both of which play entirely original music. As a composer, Tony takes 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, nine-piece funk band, various chamber ensembles, pop and hip-hop groups, and several short films and TV web series. A passionate and devoted music educator as well, Tony works for the University of Oregon, the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts, and in communities both local and abroad. He is the founding director of the Shedd Youth Jazz Orchestra, teaches a variety of university classes, maintains a private lesson studio, and consistently engages with middle schools, high schools, colleges, and summer camps throughout the United States.
