Described by The New York Times as a “dauntingly skilled trumpeter,” 29-year-old Marquis Hill hones a warm, mellifluous tone on trumpet and flugelhorn with which he unravels sleek, melodic passages that are as commanding as they are cogent. With music that “crystallizes the hard-hitting, hard-swinging spirit of Chicago jazz” (Chicago Tribune), Hill builds on his distinctive sound to craft arresting originals that embrace post-bop, hip-hop, R&B, and spoken word.
