Program Notes: 

A Blue Note recording artist, this young trumpeter is one of the most buzz-about jazz artists of his generation. Winner of the 2007 Thelonius Monk Competition and Downbeat’s 2012 trumpet player of the year, Ambrose Akinmusire and his quintet play the intimate Kogod Cabaret at The Clarice for two sets of “killing melt-your-face-off jazz.” Unbeholden to any category, this thoughtful composer and bandleader has a broad palette, big vision and defiant curiosity for the future of jazz.
