Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features GRAMMY® Award-Winning Trumpeter & Composer KEYON HARROLD and his outstanding Quintet on Thursday June 30 at 7:30 P.M.

Keyon Harrold won wide acclaim for his trumpet performances in Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic “Miles Ahead”. In New York, he landed his first major gig with Common, an experience which he says broadened his musical horizons beyond Jazz to include Funk, Afrobeat, R&B, and Blues. Soon he was performing with stars like Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Eminem, Maxwell, and Anthony Hamilton. Harrold’s most recent album ‘The Mugician’ draws on elements of Jazz, Classical, Rock & Blues to create something uniquely modern, unmistakably American.

  • “Keyon Harrold, a scorching trumpeter…” says the NEW YORK TIMES.
  • “The Mugician is only his second release…this is the album that would launch him into superstardom…A superb release,” states LONDON JAZZ NEWS.
  • “… The Mugician (Sony Legacy) is a collection of thoughtful and wide-ranging compositions…” raves ROLLING STONE.

The Keyon Harrold Quintet includes: Acclaimed Jazz Guitarist NIR FELDER who Glide Magazine calls the “Next Big Jazz Guitarist”; Renowned Pianist SHEDRICK MITCHELL who has performed and/or recorded extensively with Stevie Wonder, and the late icons, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston; Accomplished Bassist BURNISS TRAVIS whose credits include performing and recording with Robert Glasper and Esperanza Spalding; and Prolific Drummer CHARLES HAYNES who Modern Drummer calls “A true drumming multi-talent” and who has toured the globe performing with Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, and Queen Latifah.

“We are ecstatic to have GRAMMY® Award-Winning Trumpeter Keyon Harrold and his Quintet grace the stage at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Suzanne Bresette, the Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz and Blues Club. “Keyon is a brilliant trumpeter and he will deliver an impressive show for Jimmy’s enthusiastic audience.”
