Hargrove's talent was discovered by Wynton Marsalis when Marsalis came to visit his high school. He attended Boston's famous Berklee School of Music and was soon releasing albums. He also was a sideman on albums by other notable people: e.g. Sonny Rollins, James Clay , Frank Morgan, and Jackie McLean.
One of his biggest influences was saxophone player David "Fathead" Newman who played with the Ray Charles Band at Roy's junior high school.
