“I love connecting with people,” says trumpeter Josh Shpak.  “Whether they be teenagers or your grandma, if I can see that they’re feeling the music, I’m happy.” With a rich style evident of influences from classic jazz to electronica, Shpak has made himself a commodity in the music world. This cross-generational quality has launched a career playing with jazz heavyweights such as Cedar Walton and Jimmy Heath, soul legends Tower of Power, and young crossover innovators like Esperanza Spalding, Christian Scott, and John Daversa.
