Bio

Since first arriving on the New York scene as a New Orleans transplant in 2006, Vidal's irresistibly fraternal demeanor and musical boisterousness have always been refreshingly conspicuous.

Geoff’s professional career took flight at age fifteen with his recruitment into the Stage Door Canteen, a noted Cape Cod big band, and later the prestigious sax studio of Lynn Klock at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Geoff’s continued UMASS honors included early induction into Grammy winner Jeff Holmes’ UMASS Jazz Ensemble and multiple mentions in the Down Beat Student Music Awards, including Best Collegiate Soloist in 2002.

In New York Geoff’s career has been no less auspicious. After several years touring and performing out of New Orleans, he arrived in NYC to quickly become a tenor-of-choice for a host of notable bandleaders and appear in some of the city’s most prominent clubs.

As both a sideman and a leader, the years leading up to this release have seen the total ripening of Geoff’s musical character. At once insatiably unique and deliciously accessible, his unharnessed energy has effloresced into a performance both playful and deliberate, liberated yet totally in control.
