VALERY PONOMAREV (b. 1943). While studying classical trumpet in his native Moscow, Valery's life was changed forever when he heard a recording of CLIFFORD BROWN playing The Blues Walk. Valery's life was so affected by the music and
spirit of jazz that he left his homeland of Russia to pursue his dream of playing it. After listening to and transcribing the music of Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard and many others, Valery realized his dream of playing trumpet with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Valery has since recorded several albums as a leader and has worked with many jazz greats including, Lionel Hampton, Benny Golson, Paquito D'Rivera, Lou Donaldson and Harold Land.
