Roy Hargrove Quintet 'The Seattle Vibe' | Live Studio Session

2,127

He's known as one of the top trumpet players in jazz for the past quarter-century, and returned to the KNKX studios with a fantastic new song for the city Roy says has always inspired him.

"The Seattle Vibe" was so new, his quintet hadn't heard it until they arrived in town for their stay at Jazz Alley. There wasn't much time to chat with the band before our live broadcast, Roy was guiding them through the soulful changes and groovy tempo of his latest song.

If you don't catch Hargrove in live performance, you'll have trouble hearing his music these days. He hasn't made an album since the 2009 big band album Emergence. Recording albums don't make financial sense, he says, making this exclusive studio session a special occasion.

Roy Hargrove - trumpet
Justin Robinson - alto sax
Tadataka Unno - piano
