Ambrose Akinmusire Does it Again

 Ambrose Akinmusire (ah-kin-moo-sir-ee)  and his new album The Imagined Savior is Far Easier to Paint really cooks! His second release on Blue Note records since his debut in 2011, Ambrose truly takes you on a auditory exhibition for over an hour with his emotionally-packed new compositions. Featuring collaborations with artists such as Becca Stevens, Theo Bleckmann and Charles Altura on several tracks, Ambrose Akinmusire continues to paint a dramatic narrative for the listener as his musical career continues to unfold and flourish.

Oakland’s own, Ambrose has received countless awards for his musicianship and compositions since beginning his career as a  jazz trumpeter. Winning the Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition in 2007, as well as the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition,  one could say Ambrose Akinmusire is one of the most decorated young musicians in the world today.

His newest album is no disappointment – Check it out as it hits the streets March 11th!
