Roy Hargrove was a two-time Grammy-winning jazz trumpeter considered to be one of the premiere jazz trumpeters of his generation. Hargrove played trumpet on recordings for other artists including Common, Erykah Badu, and D’Angelo. He performed with Herbie Hancock and other jazz greats. He died in New York City on Friday, November 2, 2018, from a heart attack at the age of 49.

Hargrove was known for his hard bop style and he led the progressive jazz group The RH Factor which blended jazz, funk, hip-hop, gospel, and soul. He won a best Latin jazz Grammy in 1998 for his album “Habana,” and won again in 2002 for best jazz instrumental album for “Directions in Music,” a live performance with Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker.
