34-year-old American trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire is definitely among the most interesting jazz stars of his generation. His entire career has been a success after another as his albums have gained rave reviews and made him a household name among enthusiastic jazz fans. His music is a combination between poetry and political statements graced with his amazing musicianship. Some ten years ago he won two highly appreciated soloist competitions, both Carmine Caruson’s and Thelonious Monk’s. In May Ambrose Akinmusire is going to release his brand new live album recorded at the legendary Village Vanguard Club. He made his debut in Pori Jazz back in 2015, and his return to the festival is highly requested.
