長號手Michael Wang是國際爵士樂界新興的人才。生於台灣，在美國長大，曾獲得伯克利音樂學院的全額獎學金，並於2012-2017年就讀。Michael畢業後，移居紐約開始與Mingus大樂隊，Frank Lacy，Slide Hampton，Valery Ponomarev，Josh Evans大樂隊等藝術家合作 2010年發布了首張專輯“Bone of the Wang Vol. 1”in 2020。然而，好景不常，三月紐約疫情突然大爆發，波及了無數的爵士樂酒吧，前景堪憂，在沉寂數月後，他決定回到他的出生地台灣尋找演奏的新契機。回台後，他很快找到了數位優秀的樂手組成四重奏，開始了紐約到台灣的爵士之旅。樂團成立的宗旨是願藉由表演專輯上的樂曲、爵士樂標準（Jazz Standard）和其它現代樂曲來推廣更多Bebop的曲風。由於在紐約其間他受到許多大師，如Roy Hargrove, Frank Lacy 和 Johnny O'Neal等的薰陶和指導，他希望透過他的演奏，讓台灣喜歡爵士樂的朋友能欣賞到第一手的傳統紐約Bebop，進而與國內樂手做更深度的交流。Trombonist, composer, and arranger Michael Wang is an up and coming talent in the NYC music scene. Originally from Sacramento, California, Wang began his studies on the trombone at the age of eleven. In 2012, he moved to Boston to begin his studies at Berklee College of Music as a recipient of the Presidential Scholarship, where he studied with Phil Wilson, Marshall Gilkes, David Santoro, George Garzone, Darren Barrett, among others. He was a member of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute under the direction of Danilo Perez, from 2013-2016. During his time in school Wang participated in several jazz trombone competitions, becoming the winner of the American Trombone Workshop's "Division 1" solo competition in 2015 and was a finalist in the ITA's Carl Fontana and JJ Johnson Competitions, in 2015 and 2016. After graduating Berklee, Wang moved to New York City in 2017 where he began performing regularly with groups such as the Mingus Big Band, Frank Lacy's Smalls Sextet and "Tromboniverse," Josh Evans' Big Band, Pedro Giraudo's Jazz Orchestra, Arturo O'Farrill's Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Alexi David's "Three or Four Shades of Mingus," David Chamberlain's "Band of Bones," among others.
