Introducing Ambrose Akinmusire: Moving Jazz Forward

Our Friday night mainstage show at Jazz Port Townsend showcases an exciting new voice on trumpet – Ambrose Akinmusire.

Ambrose is the winner of both the 2007 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo
Competition and 2007 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. He'll be playing with the Gerald Clayton Trio, and we're confident you'll be blown away by what you hear.

To give you a sample, here's a video of Ambrose soloing at a NYC performance.
