Each generation is seeking after a star to admire and navigate, such as Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis or Don Cherry. The latest was discovered a few years ago: when trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusier released the album When The Heart emerge’s Glistening in 2011 – and so a star was born. The listeners fell head over heels over his sparkling trumpet and compositions. Today, he has won all the prestigious jazz awards and creates wonderful music.
Akinmusier was discovered already in high school in Orlando by saxophonist Steve Coleman, who invited the young trumpeter on his european tour.
