Tony Glausi Hasta La Madrugada (S2 | E63)

We made it, but just barely! After chatting away in our first show we got down to business and covered the rest of Tony’s playlist in this part two of a two-part series.

I spent nearly two hours interviewing Tony Glausi… that’s how generous he was with his time. I hate that so much of our conversation was “left on the cutting room floor,” but that’s how these things go. We kept the best and covered a bushel and a peck of music that was simply unknown to me. A ton of fun!

About Tony Glausi

Glausi’s initial fascination with music began at age four, often sitting at his family’s piano, figuring out melodies by ear and eventually writing simple compositions. His mother and each of his four grandparents worked as professional musicians. His earliest memories include dancing to the music his parents put on in their living room.

He picked up the trumpet at age ten, citing a love for the instrument’s diverse tonal possibilities, as well as its look and feel. Primarily studying classical music until age 16, Glausi gained exposure to jazz while a student at West Linn High School under the tutelage of music director Kevin Egan. He studied jazz performance and composition respectively as an undergraduate and later master’s student at the University of Oregon in Eugene.


“Upon winning the 2017 Laurie Frink Career Grant, Glausi had the opportunity to be mentored by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

During his college years, Glausi performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest with artists including grammy-nominated pianist Randy Porter, vocalist Halie Loren, and pianist George Colligan while also leading his own quintet and 9-piece band. He recorded his debut album Identity Crisis at age twenty-one.

Glausi relocated to New York City in 2018. During this time, he began touring with pianist and singer Peter Cincotti and a wide array of young rising jazz stars, including bassist Russell Hall, keyboardist Chris McCarthy, saxophonist Julian Lee, drummer Bryan Carter, pianist Emmet Cohen, and many others.

Glausi Currently serves on the faculty of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. Learn more about Tony at his website.
