Marquis Hill, one of the most promising American jazz players, combines jazz with contemporary beats. Former band member of Marcus Miller. "A dauntingly skilled trumpeter." New York Times
Trumpeter Marquis Hill leaves a great impression with the way he connects jazz to spoken word, hip-hop and contemporary beats and breaks. In his Blacktet he plays with musicians from his native Chicago. These musicians can improvise on dazzling grooves, but they also translate standards and more obscure gems from jazz history to the present.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
