A full tank of inspiration

In Ambrose Akinmusire’s playing, passion and intellect enter into a fascinating dance. The man with the poetic name is a consummate and virtuosic trumpeter with an extravagant imagination. It’s not only musically that he celebrates the African in the Afro-American. His work gains added depth through a political subtext about the reality of life for Afro-Americans in the USA.
