Roy Hargrove Quintet
Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn
6:30pm doors, 7:30pm start
Known for his collaborations with R&B stars like D’Angelo and Erykah Badu, ROY HARGROVE is among the premier jazz trumpeters of his generation. With his stellar quintet, Hargrove “is reaching a new and elevated level of pure jazz artistry.” (AllMusic) THE BADWAGON pits two outstanding piano trios, JASON MORAN & THE BANDWAGON and THE BAD PLUS, against one another onstage, trading songs, riffs, and maybe some friendly trash talk. This is the project’s world premier.
