Ambrose Akinmusire (US)

Jazzhouse , København K


No advance tickets


At the young age of 33, American trumpet player Ambrose Akinmusire has already shown himself as one of the brightest stars on the international scene for modern jazz.
Now he’s back again with his quintet of fellow jazzmen, who will be performing at Jazzhouse during this year’s edition of the annual Copenhagen Jazz Festival on…
Finding inspiration in a diverse catalogue of artists all the way from rap to Joni Mitchell and Björk, Akinmusire has developed his own distinct voice not only as a solo artist, but also in an ever-expanding line of collaborations – his latest being drawn in as a featured artist on rapper Kendrick Lamar’s album “To Pimp a Butterfly”.
In the past, Ambrose Akinmusire has acted as a sideman for pianist Vijay Iyer, who will also perform at this year’s festival. Now he’s back as leader of his very own group, and we’re very proud to yet again have gotten the possibility to showcase this well-honed talent on stage at Jazzhouse.
