Kafele, trumpeter, composer and producer, has been playing the trumpet for over 18 years. He attributes his love and appreciation for the art to his father who often listened to recordings of John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis among others. As a by-product of becoming a Chicago resident for about 7 years, Kafele was inundated with lively, upbeat house music. This musically enriched background provided the influences that helped cultivate his unique sound. On his release with Andy Compton on GOGO Music, he already proved that he is not only a top trumpeter, but as well a great vocalist. His heartfelt vocal-performance for “Complicated” testaments this again. Kafele was that much into the song that he did a remix of it and the result is lovely lounge version with a completely new brass hook.
