Roy Hargrove Quintet

Roy Hargrove is a hard bop-oriented musician (and acclaimed "Young Lion") who became one of America's premier trumpeters during the late 1980s and beyond. A fine, straight-ahead player who spent his childhood years in Texas, Hargrove met trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis in 1987, when the latter musician visited Hargrove's high school in Dallas. Impressed with the student's sound, Marsalis allowed Hargrove to sit in with his band and helped him secure additional work with major players, including Bobby Watson, Ricky Ford, Carl Allen, and the group Superblue. Hargrove attended Berklee for one (1988-1989) before decamping to New York City, where his studio career took flight.

In 1990, the young Hargrove (he was only 20 at the time) released his first of five recordings for Novus. He often toured with his own group, which for several years including Antonio Hart. In addition to Novus, Hargrove also recorded for Verve and served as a sideman with quite a few notable figures, including Sonny Rollins, James Clay, Frank Morgan, and Jackie McLean, and the ensemble Jazz Futures. His Verve album roster includes 1995's Family and Parker's Mood. Habana (a Grammy-winning album of Afro-Cuban music) and Moment to Moment followed at the end of the decade. Hargrove also went on to contribute to well-received R&B albums by Erykah Badu and D'Angelo, but he also remained indebted to hard bop with such albums as 2008's Earfood. A year later, Hargrove returned with his 19-member big band on Emergence. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

the young man's quintet is Amazing..and its ALL good
I just saw these guys live in Oakland less than a year ago and it was one of the best shows I've seen in the last few years! Amazing band, they put their all into each tune and you hear it in their recordings.
Roy, may not be the best of class IMHO, but he is certainly hangs with the best of them, making mondo honey outa the horn with the avant jazz blowers - fusing straight ahead jazz with swing, hip hop and the free boppin' of Ornette Coleman. Cee Rex
Head music that never leaves the heart behind. (Track: The Stinger on Earfood) Cee Rex

He gave an exquisitely virtuoso performance at NC Central University this past weekend. His group was fantastic; and it was really nice to see a "home" boy with him, Ameen Salim!
Heard him at the Blue Note in New York in a tribute to James Moody. He appeared to be playing with some familiar sidemen. In two words"Most Excellent."
We love you in Chicago, come back and see us.
Saw him live a couple years ago in New York. Great quintet. The piana player was 70+ but really rocked.
Frankly, I like this guy's conceptual approach better than Wynton. He seems much more open minded also.
I caught Roy at Catch the Jazz Showcase, in Syracuse,NY after the Jazz fest ('91-'92?) day show-
man, this cat tore the roof off the place! My favorite, after Lee Morgan.
