Vicente Archer

Vicente Archer is a bassist, guitarist, composer, and producer hailing from the culturally-rich Woodstock, New York. Having absorbed much of the historical town’s arts culture, has made his work diverse ranging from folk to jazz to hip-hop. He attended New England Conservatory of Music and Northeastern University in Boston, where he earned a degree in business.

While in college, he picked up the double bass with swiftness. Within eight months, he was asked by great alto saxophonist, Donald Harrison, to join his group. Vicente’s first recording appearance is on Harrison’s Impulse recording “Free to Be.” Soon after he began performing with a long list of luminaries including Monty Alexander, Terence Blanchard, Freddie Hubbard, Mingus Big Band, Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Garrett, Stanley Jordan, and many more.

Today, Vicente is as prolific as ever and has been hailed as one of the most sought-after bassist of his generation appearing on over 100 records. Currently he is performing with Grammy Award®-winning artists: Robert Glasper, Nicholas Payton, and John Scofield.

Vicente has performed on every sailing of Blue Note at Sea, joining Robert Glasper and Damion Reid as part of the very popular Robert Glasper Trio as well as adding his talent to other sets and shows.
