Dallas born trumpter Roy Hargrove will be performing live at Blues Alley from June 5 through June 10, 2018.

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."
