Vaché also composed and performed music for the movie “Luckiest Man in the World” and has performed on the soundtrack for other films, including “Money Pays,” “Biloxi Blues,” “Simon,” and “The Dain Curse.” He trained actor Richard Gere for his role in the movie “The Cotton Club.” Vaché is currently a charter member of the faculty of the Juilliard Jazz Program.
