About the Album

Trumpeter/composer Thomas Marriott has covered a lot of musical ground over his 11 Origin releases, most recently with the lush balladry of his 2019 recording, Romance Language. For Trumpet Ship, Marriott goes for the exuberant, highly intuitive, propelling joy that defines a jam session. Here, that session includes three of the more electric and empathetic players in jazz - pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Luques Curtis and drummer Mark Whitfield Jr. - all long time collaborators with Marriott, recorded on an off-day in Seattle while on a quartet tour of the Northwest. Through a set of five Marriott originals along with a take on Jerome Kern's "All the Things You Are," Gil Evans' "General Assembly," and the Sonny Simmons title tune, the quartet's spirit and chemistry shine. Vivid is the magic that comes from talented, trusting friends and first takes.
