Liquid Music Series: Ambrose Akinmusire

  • Amsterdam Bar & Hall 6 West 6th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States

Jazz trumpet virtuoso Ambrose Akinmusire, known for his “unfurling lines that confound expectation” (Chicago Tribune) and “strong aesthetic compass” (The New York Times), reveals a brand new chamber music work co-commissioned by Liquid Music and the Ecstatic Music Festival. Akinmusire’s projects “[blend] art song and social justice with nu-bop rhythms and endless lyricism to create a hefty emotional impact” (The Village Voice). With special guest collaborators, he crafts a uniquely explorative and expressive musical experience during a Twin Cities based residency, building to its world premiere at Saint Paul’s Amsterdam Bar & Hall.
