Ambrose Akinmusire

Jazz Festival
Artists For Humanity EpiCenter

Berkeley, California-based trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire has become a force in jazz, at once excelling at his craft yet simultaneously stretching beyond the genre, making connections to classical, hip-hop, and other artistic circles. Refusing to be contained, he weaves inspiration from myriad sources into compositions that are as poetic and graceful as they are bold and unflinching.

This performance is part of the Jazz Festival.

“Akinmusire is one of the most acclaimed jazz artists of his generation, a trumpeter of deep expressive resources and a composer of kaleidoscopic vision.”
