On November 2nd, 2018 the Jazz world lost its Crown Prince...the one and only Roy Anthony Hargrove.
I fell in love with Roy's musical approach the first time I heard him blow. I was introduced to his music by a good friend through a recording...Roy's 1992 CD release "The Vibe". The music was hip yet still solidly in the Jazz tradition, a little Hard Bop, a little Post Bop...100% beautiful.
This episode is all about Roy,
Long Live The King!
