Featuring the music of Marques Carroll Duration: 6:27
"Aries Goddess (For Consuela and the Fallen)" is a new video from ace Chicago trumpeter Marques Carroll.
Featured on his debut album The Ancestors' Call, this moving composition was written for the mothers of
victims of gun violence. The bandleader notes that “[it] happens all too often, whether it is by street violence
or by the hands of those who are supposed to serve and protect. This piece is for all of our brothers and
sisters who have lost their lives on this soil.”
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
