Join us at the historic Ford Theatres in Hollywood for a concert under the stars. Virtuoso trumpeter and composer Josef Leimberg will make his Ford Theatres debut performing music from his recent album, Astral Progressions, a fusion of cosmic jazz with soul, R&B and hip-hop. Josef appeared on Kendrick Lamar's Grammy Award–winning LP To Pimp a Butterfly, and has worked with Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Funkadelic, Thundercat and Dr Dre, among others. For his Ford performance, he will bring along some of his favorite musicians and collaborators, including singer/songwriters Bilal, Jimetta Rose Music and Jermaine Holmes (D'Angelo's The Vanguard/Drumhedz), to perform his signature style of innovative and expansive jazz. Opening set by MAST, a jazz artist, composer and electronic musician.

“On his solo debut, “Astral Progressions,” Leimberg blasts into a decidedly cosmic realm, one that recalls Sun Ra’s transfixing work with the Mini-Moog synthesizer in the 1970s, except channeled through contemporary beat-based Los Angeles and filled with generational vigor. It’s music, thick with reverb, echo, layers of voices and a free-floating spirit that celebrates sonic spontaneity. Leimberg mixes these elements into compositions that suggest smoky cocktail jazz of the 1960s or the opening theme to a movie about a Leimert Park love affair.”—Randall Roberts, Los Angeles Times
