Keyon Harrold

“Although a protégé of Wynton Marsalis, he and Harrold are different players. Keyon blends the reflections of Miles Davis with the attitude of Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah to form something relevant and cool. And it is this sound, honed yet raw, that announces Keyon Harrold onto the scene, not as a sideman, but a serious player among equals,” says ALL ABOUT JAZZ (review of The Musician).

GRAMMY® Award-Winning Trumpeter & Composer KEYON HARROLD won wide acclaim for his trumpet performances in Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic "Miles Ahead". Harrold's most recent album 'The Mugician' draws on elements of Jazz, Classical, Rock & Blues to create something uniquely modern, unmistakably American. NEW YORK TIMES states, "Keyon Harrold, a scorching trumpeter..." LONDON JAZZ NEWS raves, "Featuring on over a hundred albums with artists as diverse as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rihanna and Common...The Mugician...a superb release." WYNTON MARSALIS raves Keyon Harrold is, "The future of the trumpet." The Keyon Harrold Quintet includes: Acclaimed Jazz Guitarist NIR FELDER who GLIDE MAGAZINE calls the "Next Big Jazz Guitarist"; Renowned Pianist SHEDRICK MITCHELL (Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston); Bassist BURNISS TRAVIS (Robert Glasper & Esperanza Spalding); Prolific Drummer CHARLES HAYNES who MODERN DRUMMER calls "A true drumming multi-talent" (Lady Gaga & Queen Latifah).
