Trumpeter Lee Hogans has made a name for himself through stints on some of the most sought-after gigs on the circuit including tours and recordings with Jay-Z, Sean Combs, Prince, Mark Ronson, Jill Scott, and many more. With his own band, Pursuance, Hogans, a musician of the hip-hop generation, brings it all back into the pocket with his jazz influences, ’70s soul sensibilities, and slick runs that hit in all the right spots. As a bandleader, Hogans seems comfortable both taking the spotlight and laying back behind his groove-centric band members. Check out their newly released single, “Groove,” off of their forthcoming Summer 2012 album aptly entitled after the Louis Armstrong quote, What We Play Is Life.
