Homelife Revisited – Roy Hargrove

A medium swinger with a classic modern post-bop sound, this song has an active rhythm section part and plenty of dynamic contrast. In addition to the original 1993 recording, there is a video of this song from 2017—a great opportunity to see how this song evolved over the years.

October 16, 1969 – November 2, 2018

Roy Hargrove was a pioneer in modern hard-bop jazz and is widely regarded as one of the best trumpeters to emerge from the 1990s. As a high school student in Waco, Texas, young Roy met Wynton Marsalis in 1987. Impressed with the young man's talent, Wynton encouraged Roy.
