Trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire is simultaneously at the centre and the periphery of jazz. His masterful 2018 album Origami Harvest is a testament to the skill and vision of this influential band leader. He weaves together left-field jazz, hip hop and funk, chamber music, spoken word and social consciousness to create a richly textured soundscape that crosses genres and redefines the form.
