The trumpeter, winner of the 2014 Thelonious Monk Competition, performs jazz standards, often incorporating spoken word and hip-hop. “His articulation, precise but unlabored, calls to mind the precedent of Clifford Brown, while his bravura phrasing suggests an equal immersion in Freddie Hubbard” (JazzTimes). His sparkling quintet is Greg Ward (sax), Joel Ross (vibes), Jonathan Pinson (drums), and Jeremiah Hunt (bass).
