Ambrose Akinmusire is one of the most acclaimed young artists in jazz. His Blue Note debut, When the
Heart Emerges Glistening, appeared on multiple Best of 2011 lists. Winner of the 2012 60th Annual Downbeat
Critics Poll for Trumpet. Named Trumpeter of the Year in the 2012 Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards.
“seems destined for much wider recognition…limber, straight-ahead jazz with mystery and
pop instincts that gets around most of the old, pervasive mainstream influences, both of
trumpet playing and bandleading.”
– The New York Times
