CABARET TONIGHT IN NYC: ROY HARGROVE BIG BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE
Roy Hargrove Big Band with special guest Roberta Gambarini will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Tuesday through Sunday, August 20th through 25th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. Since his emergence in the late 1980s, trumpet player Roy Hargrove has proved to be an adventurous and wide-ranging artist, proudly immersed in the jazz tradition and yet continually striking out for new terrain. Among his groups include the straight-ahead, hard bop Roy Hargrove Quintet and Crisol, an Afro-Cuban ensemble that won a Grammy in 1998 for Best Latin Jazz Performance with its album Habana. With the funk-oriented RH Factor, Hargrove released the 2003 album Hard Groove, featuring guest appearances by R&B superstars Erykah Badu, Common, and D'Angelo. His last album, 2008's quintet session Earfood (Groovin' High/Emercy), was featured in dozens of year-end Top 10 lists. There is a $20-$35 cover.
