Trumpetist Theo Croker was born in 1985. Like most of his peers, it is not likely he grew up knowing only jazz. Rock, funk, hip-hop, soul and electro all had a role in his musical education and personal creations. The grandson of the great trumpetist Doc Cheatham and protégé to singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, Croker often switches it up with his albums. And Star People Nation doesn’t break with this trend. “It’s taken me thirty years of analyzing my own identity as an artistic black man to finally fit all of this into my interpretation of Black American Music,” explains Croker. “We have been positioned to receive creative transmissions. We are grounded in the now in order to shape the vision of our future. Star people nation is now in motion.Star Nation People is thus a translation of his personal experiences, spiritual and creative, but also an introspective collection of provocative, passionate and open-minded compositions that discuss everyday human values. Theo Croker translates this musically into a funky jazz rich in African percussions, American brass, and Caribbean flair. Croker is not limited to his trumpet and plays key, drum, synthesizer and percussion parts on this record as well as taking part in choral sections. Nevertheless, the essence of his groovy compositions remains inherently jazz. Croker abides to the traditions of his instrument through which he confirms, album after album, that he is one of the trumpet’s most adventurous ambassadors. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Kamasi Washington, the Sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he went on to repeat this with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.
