As part of Jazz at the Fort, critically acclaimed master American jazz trumpeter and bandleader Darren Barrett, also an educator and recording artist, will perform. From Toronto, Canada, Barrett continues to awe and energize audiences with his authoritative execution, infectious music compositions, and unpredictable band formations. Barrett is committed to using his technical prowess and improvisational excellence as a platform to sustain jazz’s rich cultural legacy while instilling a sense of discipline, excellence, and purpose into the next generation of young, great musicians. Barrett continues in the teaching tradition of Art Blakey by affording young and talented musicians an opportunity to share the bandstand with him on stages around the world.
