Markus Rutz

Born:

Markus Rutz plays trumpet with bluesy, soulful style and a tone that has been called gorgeous. He composes music from his home base in Chicago, Illinois where he also performs modern jazz.

For over three decades, the musical discoveries continue for Chicago-born jazz composer and trumpeter, Markus Rutz.

As described by Downbeat’s J.D. Considine, with his “big, dark tone and a fluid ease to his phrasing,” trumpet player, composer and bandleader, Markus regularly delights audiences in venues throughout his hometown and across the United States.

Capturing the same spirit as his dynamic live performances, 2019 marked the release of his third album, Blueprints – Figure One: Frameworks

The Compass: Live at Pianoforte

Featuring the music of Markus Rutz
Duration: 10:00

This live performance take of my original tune "the Compass" is from the first volume of my Blueprints album Figure One: Frameworks. It is a composition dedicated to my mother Lois Jo. The album version also features saxophonist Brice Winston who plays an emotive and energetic tenor saxophone solo immediately followed by the mysterious, searching style of Matt Gold’s guitar that develops into a groove.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
