One of the most influential trumpet players in recent jazz history arrives at the Jamboree. Born in the jazz cradle that is Philadelphia in 1959, the name Michael Philip Mossman burst to the scene for the first time during an Anthony Braxton tour through Europe in 1978. By 1980 he was touring the world with Roscoe Mitchell, the free jazz star. He later collaborated with Lionel Hampton, the Jazz Messangers of Art Blakey and Machito. During the 80s he was part of Out Of the Blue, a super combo that reunited him with the best from the Young Lions of the era. After that he continued to work with figures of jazz like Toshiko Akiyoshi, Horace Silver, Gerry Mulligan and Eddie Palmieri, earned a Grammy nomination and composed the soundtrack for “Chico y Rita”, directed by Fernando Trueba. Mossman will share the stage with some of the most relevant musicians in our scene such as the Valencia native Perico Sambeat, sax player and tavelling companion of Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel and many others. One of those nights that will make history in the cellar of the Plaza Real.
