Profile
Cuong Vu (born Saigon, 19 September 1969) is a Vietnamese-American jazz trumpeter, vocalist, and composer. Although often labeled as an avant-garde player, he does not limit himself to this type of playing, preferring to use influences from many forms of contemporary jazz, as well as rock, electronica, groove and ambient musics.
