Ambrose Akinmusire is one of the most acclaimed young artists in jazz. His Blue Note debut, When the Heart Emerges Glistening, appeared on multiple Best of 2011 lists."seems destined for much wider recognition...limber, straight-ahead jazz with mystery and pop instincts that gets around most of the old, pervasive mainstream influences, both of trumpet playing and bandleading."
