Heralded as 'a major creative figure in the making' (Jazzwise) and comparable 'with some of the biggest names in African-American jazz, Miles Davis included' (Guardian), Akinmusire is quickly becoming one of the most fresh and striking figures on today's jazz scene.
Before he reached 18, Ambrose Akinmusire had already performed with a string of acclaimed musicians including Joe Henderson, Joshua Redman and Steve Coleman. He's since gone on to play in the bands of Herbie Hancock, Jason Moran and Wayne Shorter and London's Ronnie Scott's was bursting at the seams last year.
