What an incredible talent Victor Barranco is! And what a life story! The list of guys who can play both classical and jazz as well as Victor is very, very short. In short, he is a phenomenal musician who just happens to play the trombone.
From the show notes:
Victor Barranco, trombonist for the US Army Blues, is the guest on this episode of The Brass Junkies. He talks about growing up in the only Puerto Rican family in North Pole, Alaska, playing in the One O'Clock Lab Band at UNT, how he got his gig with the Army, and about his passion for woodworking. Spoiler Alert: He's hilarious.
