During his 15-year career, Ambrose Akinmusire has paradoxically situated himself in both the centre and the periphery of jazz, most recently emerging in classical and hip-hop circles. Motivated primarily by the spiritual and practical value of art, Akinmusire wants to remove the wall of erudition surrounding his music. He aspires to create richly textured emotional landscapes that tell the stories of the community, record the time, and change the standard. While committed to continuing the lineage of black invention and innovation, he manages to honour tradition without being stifled by it.
