Title: RIP Roy Hargrove
Post by: slslbs on November 03, 2018, 03:16:37 PM
imo the best trumpet player of this generation. I was lucky enough to see him 3 times

Roy Hargrove, an incisive trumpeter who embodied the brightest promise of his jazz generation, both as a young steward of the bebop tradition and a savvy bridge to hip-hop and R&B, died on Friday night in New York City. He was 49.

The cause was cardiac arrest, according to his longtime manager, Larry Clothier. Hargrove had been admitted to the hospital for reasons related to kidney function; he had been on dialysis for many years.

Hargrove was a two-time Grammy winner, in two illustrative categories: Best Jazz Instrumental Album in 2003 for Directions in Music, featuring a post-bop supergroup with pianist Herbie Hancock and saxophonist Michael Brecker; and Best Latin Jazz Performance in 1998 for Habana, a groundbreaking Afro-Cuban project recorded in Havana.

Hargrove had been scheduled to perform on Saturday in a jazz vespers service at Bethany Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., as part of the TD James Moody Jazz Festival.

Been spinning this playlist while at work today...so great.


Trumpeter Roy Hargrove passed away last week at the all-too-young age of 49. As a bandleader and sought-after sideman, Hargrove’s talents were revered by listeners and fellow performers alike.

This edition of Saturday Stream presents a Spotify Playlist featuring the work of Roy Hargrove. Born in Waco, Texas in 1969, he later studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. After a little over a year at Berklee, Hargrove decided to move to New York City to attend The New School. A figure in the NYC neo-soul scene in the early-2000s, Hargrove made considerable contributions to the Soulquarians collective recordings including D’Angelo’s breakthrough Voodoo as well as albums by Common and Erykah Badu.

A two-time Grammy Award winner, Hargrove also led several projects like The RH Factor while working alongside such standout musicians as Herbie Hancock, Branford Marsalis, Christian McBride, Joshua Redman, Nicholas Peyton, Dave Brubeck, Pino Palladino and others. The playlist below features those skilled performers as well as John Mayer, Karl Denson, Diana Ross, Angelique Kidjo, Nile Rodgers, Femi Kuti and several additional collaborators.
