Quentin Coaxum

One of Chicago’ brightest young trumpeters, Quentin Coaxum is one of our most thoughtful composers. He is inspired by great literary voices including James Baldwin, Maya Angelou and Nikki Giovanni, the civil rights movement and “the dynamics of human relationships in America’s current social climate.” His deeply moving song, “Alton Sterling,” honors the memory of the African American shot to death two years ago by white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Coaxum, who grew up outside of St. Louis, is heavily influenced by the soulful post-bop styles of the late '50s and early '60s, but as evidenced on his well-received 2014 debut album, Current, his music has a contemporary edge.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
