“…fantastic, forward-thinking music.” – The Ottawa Citize

Trumpeter/composer/bandleader Ambrose Akinmusire brings his artistic vision to the next level with The Imagined Savior Is Far Easier To Paint, his second release for Blue Note Records. This album comes on the heels his major label debut, which the New York Times named one of the best albums of 2011. This new record focuses around his quintet, but is thoughtfully embellished with a string quartet and guest vocalists, creating pieces that pulse with energy and focus. As the New Yorker aptly puts it, “Akinmusire skillfully embeds his bravura horn work in an undeniably ambitious new-jazz vision.”
