Having the skill and maturity to approach the mainstream repertoire of jazz standards with his own unique sensibilities and combines them with his deep appreciation of hip-hop, Corey Wilkes has established himself as one of the best improvising trumpeters in the modern era. He continues to bring his brand of musicianship and talent to the forefront of the genre. His soulful notes can be heard gracing a variety of contemporary projects including sets by DJ Logic, Osunlade, and Josh Deep, as well as tracks on Hidden Beach Recordings Presents: Unwrapped Vol. 4 and Kahil El Zabar’s Ascension Loft Series.
