Program notes

This profile of Vicente Archer, from the brilliant Sound of New York documentary series, pictures a double-bassist who lives and breathes his craft: "As a person in general I give my heart to everything." Archer was born in 1975, in Woodstock, New York, making him one of the series' few native NY musicians. From being plucked from the student ranks by Donald Harrison and Eric Reed for a European tour, he has built a career on collaborations spanning an impressive range, from Terence Blanchard to Robert Glasper, Norah Jones to Wynton Marsalis. As legendary instrument maker Joe Marciano says, "he can play with the best musicians in the world" at the drop of a hat, "whether in jazz or pop."
