May 2012 SFJAZZ Hotplate Mix

This month's SFJAZZ Hotplate features local trumpeter Geechi Taylor paying tribute to hard bopper Roy Hargrove this Thursday night at Amnesia (853 Valencia Street). The evening will also include the always fascinating Front Burner multi-media session on the life and times of Hargrove and his many different projects, led by SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca Mauleón during intermission.

This hour long Hotplate mix features a wide selection of tracks from Roy Hargrove as both a leader and as a sideman. It's a musical journey that sheds light on the many diverse recordings Hargrove has played on throughout his career that includes everything from Afro-Cuban jazz and Hard Bop to R&B, Hip-Hop, and Afrobeat. It's easy to see why Hargrove has firmly established himself today as one of the premier players in jazz and beyond.
