Synopsis

With support

American jazz trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire’s Blue Note debut When The Heart Emerges Glistening was released in 2011 to rave reviews and comparisons to Miles Davis.

The Los Angeles Times praised his 'chameleonic tone that can sigh, flutter or soar,' adding that 'Akinmusire sounds less like a rising star than one that was already at great heights and just waiting to be discovered.' Seven years on, his music is enriched by a compositional element and an opulent sound palette. His virtuoso trumpet is joined by his longtime quartet in a set filled with light and shade, lyricism and swing.
