“This is my favorite way to play,” says Hargrove, who, at 38, is one of a handful of jazz artists of his generation who have deservedly attained critical and commercial star status. “I like playing music that’s considered classic jazz, especially now when it’s hard to find musicians who deal with the jazz tradition. So many people are playing the ‘new and improved’ jazz, which alienates a lot of the audience. I’m not afraid to play the blues and soul, and I like to try to be innovative. But I prefer the standards sound. If you get too far from that, what’s the point?”
