On March 21 I had a truly inspiring experience.
Trumpet player genius and composer Ambrose Akinmusire played the A-Trane in Berlin with his quintet.
All of them being amazing musicians, it was truly inspiring to witness Ambrose sharing his incredible trumpet skillz and musical vision. No doubt that he deserves all the awards his talent has been acknowledged with.
I had the chance to meet him backstage after the show and found that he is not only an amazing musician, but also a very open and kind human being, which shows in his music. Got some valuable advice on trumpet playing from him.
Out of the current Jazz trumpet players, Ambrose is probably the one I wanted to meet the most. Lucky me! Fabulous birthday present from my love 🙂
His latest album is a must, for anyone interested in Jazz.
