Roy Hargrove, the Dallas born trumpeter has never been short of hipness. 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. With a band including the excellent New Orleans-born pianist Sullivan Fortner, and formidable young drummer Quincy Phillips. Hargrove’s snappy phrase turns and vibrato-laden long notes, pared with alto saxist Justin Robinson’s fluent improvisations, embellish his usual selection of swingers and Latin shuffles.
