Trotmanโ€™s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr., Kirk Whalum and Najee, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. So much so that the New England Urban Music Awards, and The Barbados Music Awards both named him “Jazz Artist of The Year” on multiple occasions.

Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. In 2021, Elan returned to his Alma Mater as an Associate Professor in the Ensemble Department. Movie Credits include the 2017 Film โ€œDetroitโ€ by Kathryn Bigelow and the 2022 Whitney Houston Biopic โ€œI Wanna Dance With Somebodyโ€, Directed by Kasi Lemmons and features Stanley Tucci, Tamara Tunie, Ashton Sanders and Naomi Ackie.
