Concert
Ambrose Akinmusire

Considered as one of the most important jazz trumpeters of last 10 years , Ambrose Akinmusire was described by “The New Yorker” magazine : “a thrilling young trumpeter and astute bandleader [with a] unique spark in his playing.” Akinmusire was only nineteen years old when he was discovered by the famous saxophonist Steve Coleman and invited to join his European tour. The artist was the winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition which is considered as one of the most prestigious awards in jazz music. The artist chose to be a schooled musician and began to make a name in jazz circles even when he was a bright student of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard. His latest album, “the imagined savior is far easier to paint” is considered as Ambrose Akinmusire's highest artistic achievement not only for its musicality but with regard to its lyrics and themes as well. A master musician at the age of 32, we have the fortune of listening to and watching Ambrose Akinmusire many more times.
