Keyon Harrold comes to jazz and pop from his home in St. Louis, a straight-ahead modern mainstream musician. He has some of the bold technique of Freddie Hubbard and fluidity of Lee Morgan, while stylistically within the neo-bop range of Wynton Marsalis orTom Harrell. Harrold has played with the Count Basie and Roy Hargrove big bands and as a sideman with Billy Harper, and has worked with Jay-Z, Beyoncé Knowles, and Snoop Dogg, among others, so he knows the twentysomething audience as well as grown-up purist jazz listeners. Harrold is an accomplished player with both youth and experience on his side, but also uses different arenas of modern jazz as a composer. as Harrold only scratches the surface of his potential, and though somewhat derivative of past predecessors, it bodes well as the leading jazz trumpet players of a new generation. Keyon also work on the sound track for the movie "Miles Ahead" Our conversation was amazing. Very low key and love music. Enjoy this I Did. Special thanks to Brother Eric Wyatt.
