Aquiles Navarro Interview

Source: Jazz Right Now.

Watching Aquiles Navarro establish himself on the New York music scene over the past six years has been fascinating. He’s a singular voice on trumpet and has been a transformative presence in every ensemble of which he is a part. His most well-known projects are a duo with Brooklyn-born drummer Tcheser Holmes and the collaborative quintet Irreversible Entanglements with Moor Mother, Keir Neuringer, and Luke Stewart, in addition to Holmes. I had the opportunity to speak with him in September to talk about his duo record, Heritage of the Invisible II, just released on October 23.
