About Ricardo Jimenez:

“A musician in the truest sense”, internationally recognized trumpet player, and vocalist, Ricardo Jimenez captures “the essence of humanity in his art” ~Sean Roldan. A storyteller, communicator, and innovator, he defies boundaries through mission, music, and education. A recipient of the Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Ricardo traveled the world looking at the intersectionality of self and society through music. He has been welcomed as an artist on five continents, having shared music in Austria, England, Germany, India, Italy, Senegal, Spain, Brazil, and Japan. Some highlights of his travels are performing in Coca-Cola Studio Tamil’s Season One debut, Bollywood productions studio single soundtrack “Chill Makka”, and working with children teaching music throughout Senegal, helping to found the non-profit “Langusik”.

Born and based in Chicago, Downbeat and Jeff ensemble award-winner, Ricardo Jimenez performed with the stage band in Porchlight Theater's award-winning production of "Blues In The Night", featuring legends such as Felicia P. Fields, Maulty Jewell IV, and Donica Lynn. He worked as an on-stage musician in Ron O.J. Parson’s and Felicia P. Fields’ Jeff-nominated, original production “Pearls: Rollin’ with the Blues.” Ricardo has also worked and performed with many groups and artists at home and abroad such as “Cosimo and the Hot Coals,” “Paganin Soatnquartett,” “Afrika Groove,” Joe Locke, Tim Garland, Geoffrey Keezer, John Harmon, Gene Bertoncini, Hermann Haertel, Simon Wascher, Julia Siedl, Tunico, Matú, Khatija Rahman ,Arivu, and Sean Roldan.

As a global educator, Ricardo strives to enable his students to become whole artists, with a focus on decolonizing the mind, liberating the spirit, and becoming at ease in multiple genres and unafraid to tap into their creative potential. Ricardo currently works throughout Chicago teaching a variety of music programs in Chicago’s public schools, as well as teaching online lessons to students of all ages across the globe.
