US jazz trumpet player Roy Hargrove dies at 49

Source: Agence France-Presse



4 NOV 2018

American trumpet player Roy Hargrove, a precocious talent and a frequent performer at European jazz festivals, died Friday at age 49, his Facebook page announced Saturday.

The page quoted his longtime manager Larry Clothier as saying Hargrove died in New York from cardiac arrest following complications from a battle with kidney disease.

"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," the post read.

"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."

5. very sad. My son, who is a young jazz trumpeter got to meet Roy Hargrove backstage

at the Monterey Jazz Festival when my son was 14 years old. Roy Hargrove was very nice to him. that was 8 years ago.
Hargrove was struggling with substance issues at the time, but still could play like the amazing trumpeter that we was. God rest his soul.

7. Drugs claim another talented musician.

Damn...

I saw, a then 16-year-old, Roy step onto a professional stage for the first time (alongside Wynton Marsalis) 33 years ago.

Unfortunately, I think he bought into the media's portrayal him as the "next Clifford Brown" and he got to the point where he felt invulnerable to the substances he was using.

Whatever the reason was, he let that shit get right on top of him and couldn't shake it.

I feel sad for his fans, family, and friends.

9. Roy had been abusing drugs for many years before his death.

His drug use definitely accelerated his health issues. He was a shell of himself the last few years.

10. It was no secret in the music community that Roy was using drugs...and not recreationally.

This interview is from last year.
