Roy Hargrove is an American jazz trumpeter. He won worldwide notice after winning two Grammy Awards for differing types of music. Hargrove won his first Grammy Award in 1998 for the album Habana with Crisol, the Afro-Cuban band he founded. He won a Grammy Award in 2002 for Directions In Music: Live at massey Hall with co-leaders Herbie hancock and Michael Brecker. 

Hailey Tuck is a jazz singer from the most unlikely of backgrounds. On her 18th birthday, her parents presented Hailey, then at Baptist Military Boarding school, with a college fund to further her education. She promptly did what any teenager with a love of 30s jazz, vintage dresses and Edith Piaf would do: purchased a one-way ticket to Paris.

There's no need to sugar coat it, since her impressive credits speak for themselves. Her colleagues praise her ability, her dedication and drive to perfecting her craft as a professional singer and knockout performer. On stage and in the studio, New York City based vocalist and songwriter Shayna Steele proves she is a vocal force to be reckoned with.

Laura Perrudin's career has been both unusual and eclectic. Brought up on a diet of jazz from childhood, her classical music studies led on to both electronic and traditional music, via soul and hip-hop, through her encounters with innumerable musicians, in her native Brittany, but also in Paris and New York.

“The human voice is so powerful,” says Cory Henry. “When I’m singing, it’s like this extra way of connecting and communicating with people beyond what I can do just playing the organ. I’m able to convey these messages that are really important and meaningful to me through my words. Being front and center like this every night, it’s a challenge, but I’m up for it.”

Marcus Miller is an American jazz composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, best known as a bass guitarist. He has worked with trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock, singer Luther Vandross, and saxophonist Davis Sanborn. He has won numerous Grammy Awards as a producer, a composer, and solo musician.
