Roy Hargrove

Celebrated Dallas-born trumpeter who came to fame as a neo-classical protege of Wynton Marsalis but has moved into a variety of settings – hard bop, M-Base, Latin, funk and as a horn arranger for Common, D'Angelo and Erykah Badu. He returns to his hard bop-via-funk roots band here that bristles with snappy themes and top notch playing.
