Roy Hargrove

Roy Hargrove, an American jazz trumpeter, was born in Waco, TX on October 16, 1969. Inspired by the gospel music he heard in church on Sundays and the R&B and funk music that played on the radio, Roy began learning the trumpet in the fourth grade. By junior high school, he was playing at an advanced level of proficiency.  At 16, he was studying music at Dallas's prestigious Booker T. Washington School for the Visual and Performing Arts.

Hargrove became the bandleader of the progressive group The RH Factor, which combined elements of jazz, funk, hip-hop, soul, and gospel music. Its members have included Chalmers "Spanky" Alford, Pino Palladino, James Poyser, Jonathan Batiste and Bernard Wright. He has played primarily with jazz musicians including Wynton Marsalis and Herbie Hancock. He won worldwide notice after winning two Grammy Awards for differing types of music, in 1997 and in 2002.

He has further ventured into the black pop mainstream as a collaborator with edgy soul star D'Angelo and guest appearances on albums by neo soul priestess Erykah Badu, thought-provoking rapper Common, and English acid jazz DJ/producer Gilles Peterson.
