Vincent Sperrazza

VINNIE SPERRAZZA (percussion) is a Brooklyn-based jazz drummer. His first album as a bandleader and composer, Apocryphal, was released by Loyal Label in 2014. Originally from a small town south of Utica, New York, Vin moved to NYC right after college, and he's lived in Brooklyn almost long enough to say he's from Brooklyn. He's performed with many amazing musicians, but feels self-conscious about dropping names, so he's not going to do it, save mentioning the late, great pianist Mr. James Williams, with whom Vin played many memorable concerts. He plays in several bands, spent a recent summer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival as an actor (he played a drummer- not much of a stretch), is on some cool records that have just come out (Dana Lyn/Vincent D'Onofrio Slim Bone Head Volt, Sperrazza/Sacks/Kamaguchi Play Tadd Dameron, Jacob Garchik Ye Olde), and as of this writing, is listening to rough mixes of three new projects: Apocryphal II (with the returning cast of Loren Stillman, Brandon Seabrook, Eivind Opsvik, produced by Geoff Kraly), a quartet date with Chris Speed, Bruce Barth, and Peter Brendler, and an album of music by Lee Morgan for Fresh Sound Records, all for 2017 release.
