About Roy Hargrove:  Roy Hargrove, a two-time Grammy winner who topped the 2019 DownBeat Readers’ Poll for his instrument, is widely acclaimed as one of the premier trumpet players of his generation.  He was a musician of wide tastes with a special gift for composition and melody.  While always keeping one foot firmly planted in jazz, Hargrove’s career was one of exciting genre-crossing exploration, including collaborations with Branford Marsalis, Christian McBride, Chucho Valdes, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Common and many others.  He toured worldwide throughout his 30-year career with the Roy Hargrove Quintet, the Roy Hargrove Big Band, Roy Hargrove’s Crisol, and his soul/jazz group, the RH Factor, until his death in 2018 at age 49.
