Jazz bassist Julian Vaughn performs in this Father’s Day concert. Born and raised in Kansas City, Julian Vaughn was primarily a drummer when he picked up the bass guitar. Vaughn developed his playing style while growing up in the church where his grandfather pastored until turning over the reins to Vaughn’s father. A few years later, he became good enough to start playing at concerts and live gospel recordings. Vaughn launched his solo career in 2010 with his album The Purpose Project, which springboarded him into his jazz career.
