Roy Hargrove Live at Blues Alley June 5-10

June 4, 2018

As part of the 2018 DC JazzFest, with more than 125 performances in 40+ venues, Roy Hargrove will be performing live at Blues Alley June 5-10th.

 

The Dallas born trumpeter has never been short of hipness. Mentored as a teenager by Wynton Marsalis, he has a flaring tone and a lyrical warmth; his fusing of traditional and contemporary music turns his gigs into exuberant jazz history lessons.  Hargrove has firmly established himself as among the premier players in jazz and beyond. Ever-stretching into more challenging and colorful ways to flex his musical chops, Hargrove has left indelible imprints in a vast array of artful settings.  With a band including the formidable young drummer Quincy Phillips. Hargrove's snappy phrase turns and vibrato-laden long notes, pared with alto saxophonist Justin Robinson's fluent improvisations, embellish his usual selection of swingers and Latin shuffles.  The Grammy Award–winning trumpeter  has firmly established himself as among the premier players in jazz and beyond. 

Grammy Award–winning trumpeter Roy Hargrove has firmly established himself as among the premier players in jazz and beyond. The New York Times calls him an "often dazzling trumpeter with a gift for pithy soul."
