Presented in partnership with The Jazz Foundation of America.

Joey Morant’s August ode to Louis Armstrong has fast become a tradition at Jazz at Socrates, returning now for its third edition. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Morant is one of the most exciting and dynamic trumpeters on the scene. He has performed with jazz, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll greats, including Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Lionel Hampton, and James Brown, and leads his own bands through rollicking blends of dixieland, soul, jazz and R&B . He electrifies audiences with his dazzling horn technique, skillful scat singing, and humorous asides.
