With its driving grooves and melodic themes Keyon Harold presents a show fusing his musical influences of Miles Davis (he was the trumpet behind Don Cheadle’s portrayal of Miles Davis in the film Miles Ahead), and the hip-hop of Dr Dre and Dilla. Evoking Freddie Hubbard’s rich sound and proclaimed by Wynton Marsalis to be the ‘future of the trumpet’ this debut album follows on from his tours and recordings as trumpet player to the likes of Jay-Z, 50 Cent and D’Angelo.
Raised from the fires of (now infamous) Ferguson, Missouri, Keyon Harrold has developed a reputation as one of the world’s most sought-after, emotionally electric young trumpeters on the scene.
Having toured and recorded with or produced for some of the world’s best artists and ensembles like Jay-Z, Beyonce, Common, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, he recently released his excellent debut album The Mugician, which features guest spots from the likes of Robert Glasper, Bilal, Big K.R.I.T., Gary Clark, Jr., Pharoahe Monch and more.
The next jazz wonderkid on the block, come and see a star in the making before he blows into the stratosphere.
