JazzArts Charlotte’s Jazz Room returns with an explosive show featuring New Orleans’ Trumpet Mafia and your favorite jazz classics. Joined by the region’s top jazz trumpeters, the event will celebrate the relaunch of the Jazz Room.

“After this unexpected hiatus, we are blown away by our audience’s excitement for the return of The Jazz Room,” said Lonnie Davis, President and CEO of JazzArts Charlotte. “Our jazz community can’t wait to be back to support the musicians and hear the music that they love. This will be one of the most memorable Jazz Room seasons yet.”

Led by musical director Ashlin Parker; John Michael Bradford, Al Strong, and Ariel Mejia join the Trumpet Mafia with Ocie Davis on drums, Sean Higgins on piano, and Will Ledbetter on bass.

From its organic beginnings in the summer of 2013 as a group of New Orleans trumpeters getting together at Ashlin Parker’s apartment to share practice techniques, the Trumpet Mafia has become a band of creative excellence with unexpected arrangements that mix traditional jazz and hip-hop styles.
