Personal/ Informal Jazz Concert Report
The Roy Hargrove Quintet concert that took place on December 9 2012 in Catalina Jazz Club Bar and Grill in Los Angeles staring from 9.00 pm was elaborate, distinct and brought with it a physical electricity that has always lacked in jazz. The performers of the day were the Roy Hargrove’s band members, with Roy Hargrove at the lead, who is a famous American Jazz trumpeter, Justin Robinson the saxophonist, Montez Coleman at the drums and Stephen Scott at the piano.
