Jazz Great Bill Trujillo Added to Catalogue

BILL TRUJILLO may be my father, but he is also a jazz legend, performing in the bands of Woody Herman, Lalo Guerrero, Bill Russo, Charlie Barnet, and, most notably, Stan Kenton, for whom he soloed on “Men from Mars” and “Walking Shoes.” Like many jazz musicians of that era, Bill moved to Las Vegas in 1960 and played in show orchestras at the Tropicana, Flamingo, Thunderbird, Dunes and others behind Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Tony Bennett, and many other stars. Bill has released two CDs, “It’s Tru” and “It’s Still Tru,” and he is currently working on a third, titled “Vegas.” Nick is producing the new album, which will be released at the end of September, 2012.

Trujillo performs four originals for the current catalogue, including the spicy bossa nova called “Bossa Nico.”
