Roy Anthony Hargrove (October 16, 1969 – November 2, 2018) was an American jazz trumpeter. He won worldwide notice after winning two Grammy Awards for differing types of music in 1997 and in 2002. Hargrove primarily played in the hard bop style for the majority of his albums, especially performing jazz standards on his 1990's albums. Hargrove was the bandleader of the progressive group the RH Factor, which combined elements of jazz, funk, hip-hop, soul, and gospel music.

Biography by Scott Yanow. One of the best trumpeters to emerge from the '90s, blending Afro-Cuban rhythms inventively with neobop. Roy Hargrove, Roy Harg.

This well-rounded set not only features trumpeter Roy Hargrove with his mid-'90s quintet (tenor saxophonist Ron Blake, pianist Stephen Scott, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson) but with two other rhythm sections and a few special guests. The first three selections (which includes the uptempo blues "Brian's Bounce") are called "Trilogy" and dedicated to various family members.

Renews automatically. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Roy Hargrove is a young musician with incredible potential, mostly because he has paid attention to the quality of his sound. If the first note doesn't sound good it doesn't matter how many follow. With his sweet golden sound, he follows the Cool Jazz major figures Miles Davis, Chet Baker, and Stan Getz. Of these, his sound is most like Chet Baker, but perhaps with better technique. This CD a combination of Jazz standards and new and lesser known works, is his most engaging pure jazz album to date
