Headlining the Carolina Jazz Festival, this young trumpet innovator’s serene, elusive compositions reassemble conventional jazz elements in mercurial, unorthodox musings. A winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition and the Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, Ambrose Akinmusire has appeared with jazz greats including Steve Coleman, Vijay Iyer, Aaron Parks, Esperanza Spalding and Jason Moran.
