Trumpeter and occasional vocalist Roy Hargrove (1969-2018) was one of the most influential jazz musicians of his generation. Always jumping at the chance to perform with jazz's legendary players, from Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck to Sonny Rollins and Shirley Horn, Hargrove also played today's cutting-edge experimental music with neo-soul pioneers, from Erykah Badu and Common to D’Angelo. The trumpeter is even heard on American rock star John Mayer's second studio album. Perhaps Hargrove was best loved for his beautiful tone: soft, airy, and subtle. Like so many brilliant musicians, however, the trumpeter battled his personal demons most of his career. His passing on November 2, 2018, shook the worldwide jazz community. In remembrance of Hargrove’s enormous talent, Stingray DJAZZ pays tribute to the trumpeter, presenting one of his greatest recorded concerts on Saturday, March 30 at 21:00 CET.

The New Morning is a Paris club that specializes in jazz and blues. It was 1981 when the club opened its doors for the first time. Since then, many jazz and blues giants have made their appearance on the stage, with Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon and Kenny Clarke among them. Tonight’s concert features Roy Hargrove. This trumpeter is one of the main representatives of the hard bop, the melodic and soulful version of bebop. In the 80s his potential was discovered by Wynton Marsalis, who introduced him into the world of jazz. Since then Hargrove is being loved for his bright, no-nonsense style that has already inspired many musicians. This show in the New Morning he shares the stage with Gerald Clayton, Montez Coleman, Justin Robinson and Danton Boller.
