ROY ANTHONY HARGROVE (October 16, 1969 - November 2, 2018)


October 16, 1969 – November 2, 2018

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of the great Roy Anthony Hargrove, at age 49, in New York City last night from cardiac arrest due to complications from his valiant battle with kidney disease, according to his longtime manager, Larry Clothier.

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.

Eric Vloeimans & Juan Pablo Dobal - Viento Zonda (CHALLENGE RECORDS 2018)

Viento Zonda - Eric Vloeimans' new adventure that exudes the warmth of the Argentinian breeze along the Andes. The gentle, even tickling sensation surprises as Eric and his musical brother, the virtuoso pianist Juan Pablo Dobal takes the listener to new aural delight

Eric Vloeimans plays from the heart and has shown a remarkable power to create bridges and reach the hearts of audiences all over the world. Vloeimans and Argentinian top pianist Juan Pablo Dobal are presenting a new program: Viento Zonda. These two exceptionally talented musicians are carrying the listener away on a warm, melodical and lyrical wind from the south, which heralds the sultry summer evening in Argentina. The ultimate summer night.

Eric Vloeimans (Huizen, 1963) is an improvising trumpeter and composer who regards the term ‘jazz’ as too limiting to describe his music. His work is characterized by melodic and lyrical power, and a distinctive, individual sound that is called velvety or whispering in the more subdued pieces. Juan Pablo Dobal is an Argentinian pianist who came to Amsterdam in 1989. Since 2010 he is the permanent pianist of the Karel Kraayenhof Tango Ensemble.

“Eric Vloeimans, the man with the most beautiful trumpet sound in the world…” HET PAROOL
