Vagif attended Baku State Musical Technical School, from which he graduated in 1963. By the early 1960s he had started to gain a reputation even outside of Azerbaijan as a great jazz musician. In 1966, Willis Conover, conductor of the "Jazz Time" radio program, even went as far as to say, "Vagif Mustafa Zadeh is an extraordinary pianist.

It is impossible to identify his equal. He is the most lyrical pianist I have ever known." He won first prize at the 8th International Music Festival for his performance of "Waiting for Aziza" in Monaco in 1978, but died the next year. He is also referred to as Vagif Mustafazade or Vagif Mustafa-zade. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
