Trumpeter Roy Hargrove has firmly established himself as one of the premier players in jazz and beyond since being “discovered” at a Dallas, Texas, arts magnet high school by Wynton Marsalis in the mid-1980s. Early on he was something of a teenage prodigy, touring Europe and Japan playing with jazz legends before the age of 17. While Hargrove’s early studio efforts focused on his jazz playing, he’s since explored Afro-Cuban music, started a funk/soul/hip-hop fusion band called the RH Factor, and played with artists like Erykah Badu, Common, and D’Angelo. Hargrove is always looking for more challenging and colorful ways to flex his musical chops and has left indelible imprints in a vast array of artful settings. 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 of the renowned Roy Hargrove Quintet. Hargrove last played at Jazz at the Bistro in August 1999.

These concerts replace those originally scheduled for the late pianist Joe Sample.

style: straight-ahead/modern jazz
