Pamela Espeland described Hargrove’s June 2010 appearance here as “A night of shifting moods, rhythms and speeds, fine solo turns, and fun all around, on stage and in the audience.”

Read the review here.

Trumpeter Roy Hargrove has firmly established himself as one of the premier players in jazz and beyond. Always looking for more challenging and colorful ways to flex his musical chops, Hargrove has left indelible imprints in a vast array of artful settings. Since his recording debut at age 19, he has won the praise and respect of critics, peers, and fans alike with his fiery soloing and original ideas within the hard bop context. Now entering his 40s, Hargrove seems to have no limit of ideas or different musical settings to fulfill them: in addition to his lauded quintet work, he has made forays into Latin and Cuban music (1997′s Habana), recorded an album of ballads with strings(1999′s Moment to Moment), and stepped into the hip-hop world (two recent records with his RH Factor).

His two Grammy awards have come in very different settings. His Cuban-based band Crisol (with piano legend Jesus “Chucho” Valdes and drummer Horatio “El Negro” Hernandez), won the Best Latin Jazz Performance Grammy in 1997, and 2002′s Directions in Music (with Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker) won Best Instrumental Jazz Album.
