ROY ANTHONY HARGROVE
October 16, 1969 – November 2, 2018
One of the most respected and loved musicians in our New York City community and the world at large, the trailblazing multiple Grammy Award winning trumpeter was known just as intensely for his brimming fire and fury as he was for his gorgeous, signature balladry. Over and over, his sound attested to and sanctified his deep love for music. His unselfish timbre covered the waterfront of every musical landscape. Owning his music, his sound, Roy inspired generations of musicians. He was a game changer.
He is survived by his wife, Aida, daughter Kamala, mother Jacklyn and brother, Brian.
