3/26 KEYON HARROLD Keyon Harrold - Trumpet Nir Felder - Guitar Shedrick Mitchell - Piano Burniss Travis - Bass Marcus Gilmore - Drums Keyon Harrold was born in Ferguson, MO. He grew up as one of 16 children in a family that prioritized music and community across generations. At 18 he was hit with culture shock when moving to New York City to attend The New School's jazz program. 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 hip hop. Soon he was performing with stars like Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Eminem, Maxwell, and Anthony Hamilton. In 2009, he released his solo debut, Introducing Keyon Harrold, and then won wide acclaim for his trumpet performances in Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead. Keyon’s most recent release as a leader is entitled, The Mugician. The title is a portmanteau of “musician” and “magician,” a nod to a nickname Cheadle bestowed upon the young virtuoso, and it’s an apt descriptor for a record that pushes beyond the traditional boundaries of jazz trumpet. It will be apparent when tuning in to this special concert why Keyon Harrold is in such high demand as an artist. His group consists of notable and in-demand artists in their own right for this special performance. Don't miss the magic of this group's performance brought to you in the comforts of your own room virtually by Jazz Standard.
