2010 Grammy Nominee Best Jazz Instrumental Solo – Mrs. Garvey, Mrs. Garvey
“The Music world would be hard pressed to find another ambassador capable of traversing the worlds of straight ahead swingin’ and the funky underground better than Roy Hargrove.” – All About Jazz
As a trumpeter, composer, and an arranger, Roy Hargrove has been a mainstay of the contemporary music scene in a variety of formats for nearly two decades. Since his own emergence in the late ’80s, Hargrove has proved to be an adventurous and wide-ranging artist, proudly immersed in the jazz tradition and yet continually striking out for new terrain. Among his groups include the straight-ahead, hard-bop Roy Hargrove Quintet and Crisol, an Afro-Cuban ensemble. 2009 saw the release of Emergence, his first big band album. Nineteen pieces strong Emergence offers furious swing, majestic ballads and rollicking Latin jams.
Hargrove won Grammy® Awards for two vastly different projects. In 1998, Roy’s Cuban-based band Crisol won the Best Latin Jazz Performance Grammy for the album Habana. And in 2002, Hargrove, Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker won Best Instrumental Jazz Album, Individual or Group, for their three-way collaboration Directions in Music.
