artist info

Award-winning jazz trumpeter, vocalist, songwriter and producer Keyon Harrold has received a great deal of acclaim for his work as the trumpet voice behind the Grammy-winning Don Cheadle film Miles Ahead, and his critically acclaimed album, The Mugician (Sony Legacy / Mass Appeal). As a bandleader, he has created a compelling new statement with a riveting mix of jazz, Afrobeat, soul, spoken word, hip-hop, blues, rock and even American folk. As a soloist, Keyon Harrold’s distinctly warm trumpet sound simmers in the middle register - creating drama without aggrandizing. He mesmerizes live audiences with an emotionally charged concert presentation.

In addition to being one of the new leading voices in Jazz Music, Keyon Harrold has collaborated with many of today’s top hip-hop and pop artists including: Common, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Eminem, Maxwell, and Anthony Hamilton. These experiences have broadened his musical horizons beyond jazz to include funk, Afrobeat, R&B, and hip-hop.

In 2020-21, Keyon Harrold will be touring an exciting concert program that encompasses his musical experiences entitled Jazz And The Birth of Hip Hop. Featuring a collective of jazz musicians who were fostered in hip-hop and contemporary African American music, he demonstrates that the music is rooted in the high art of modern jazz music.

Jazzmeia Horn

Mon, Dec 6 - Tue, Dec 7

“Horn is among the most exciting young vocalists in jazz, with a proud traditionalism that keeps her tightly linked to the sound of classic figures like Nancy Wilson and Betty Carter, but a vivacity of spirit and conviction that places her firmly in the present.” - The New York Times

Mike Stern Jeff Lorber Fusion featuring Jimmy Haslip & Gary Novak

Wed, Dec 8 - Thu, Dec 9

"This album, Eleven, shows why fusing styles is always worth a go. On it, Lorber teamed up with ex-Miles Davis Band member and all round six-string whizz Mike Stern, who sits in the small part of the jazz venn diagram where bebop, blues and rock overlap. His more complex melody making complements Lorber's playing well."
