Ambrose Akinmusire brings his artistic vision to the next level with his second release for Blue Note Records, The Imagined Savior is Far Easier to Paint. The album follows his acclaimed major label debut, When the Heart Emerges Glistening, which New York Times critic Nate Chinen called his No. 1 album of 2011. On his newest release, Akinmusire takes a more compositional turn, writing 12 of the 13 tracks and producing the album himself. The New Yorker calls him “a thrilling young trumpeter and astute bandleader (with a) unique spark in his playing.”
