When I first met Vaughan Tromp, he was working as the sound engineer for Spaced Out Sound Studios, a subsidiary of Mountain Records, housed in the Old Castle Brewery in Woodstock.
The Old Castle Brewery - Woodstock, Cape Province.
Of the five songs that I recorded in the glass booth, it was decided that one of them should receive the full treatment and so I got to work with Vaun for about a week. During this time he displayed a magical ability that I have not since witnessed in a single musician. His fluid playing on both electric lead and bass guitars as well as his sizzling hot saxaphone which 'blew me away' (actually when were rehearsing on Devil's Peak,he blew such a gust that I was blow backwards into a ditch)
"Devil's Peak" - Cape Town.
Vaughan has worked with so many bands and solo artists over the years, including such names at Gito Balloi and Lucky Dube.
On "Two for One" (1998) he played alto / tenor and saprano sax
On "Herbs and Roots" (2001) he played tenor & soprano sax, on 'Location', 'Herbs & Roots' as well as 'Sad Melody'
