Jonathan Powell (Trumpet)

Jonathan Powell (Trumpet)

Voted “Best Latin Jazz Trumpet Player of 2009” (Latin Jazz Corner), trumpeter Jonathan Powell can not so easily be defined. Sharing the stage and recording studio with such world renown musicians and artists like Eddie Palmieri, Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Miguel Zenon Big Band, JT Taylor (Kool & the Gang), The Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra, Blitz the Ambassador, Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Sam Rivers, Q-Tip, Andy Milne, Gary Thomas, Lenny White, Reggie Workman, MK Groove Orchestra, Just Blaze, CL Smooth, Slick Rick and Snoop Dogg, his attention to detail has earned him respect in diverse musical communities.

Jazz guru Nat Hentoff first wrote of Jonathan’s playing “Powell’s crackling range and the electricity of his imagination reminded me of the first time I heard Lee Morgan and Clifford Brown. His voice is his own…” -JazzTimes (April 2003). Through such contrasting musical collaborations, Jonathan’s original music was born of diverging influences… his group nu Sangha was born.
Jonathan Powell & Nu Sangha’s latest album “Beacons of Light” was graciously funded by over 200 contributors through Kickstarter. The album will showcase compositions written by Jonathan Powell. Each composition is a meditation and tribute to a great spiritual or revolutionary mind of our age. Look out for “Beacons of Light” release in 2015.
