Trumpeter and two-time GRAMMY winner Roy Hargrove has established himself as one of the premier players in jazz and beyond. Always exploring more challenging and colorful ways to flex his musical chops, Hargrove has left indelible imprints in an array of artful settings. In addition to collaborating with some of the greatest names in jazz, including Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, and David “Fathead” Newman, Hargrove has undeniably put jazz music into the mainstream with his hip-hop/jazz collective, the RH Factor.
