Marquis Hill

From his beginnings as one of Chicago's most thrilling young trumpeters, to his current status as an internationally renowned musician - Trumpeter, Composer and Bandleader MARQUIS HILL has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul - to Hill, they're all essential elements. THE NEW YORKER said, "His performances and recordings reveal a smart post-bop player who circumvents genre clichés by incorporating elements of hip-hop and contemporary R&B." DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE wrote on Hill's album 'Of The Way We Play', "The groove-laden arrangements provide the perfect soundscape for Hill's fluid improvisational style, which, with its glass-like lucidity, recalls the crisp elegance of hard-bop stalwart Donald Byrd." THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE called Hill's longtime working group, "a remarkably polished, immensely attractive ensemble." In 2014, Hill won the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz competition.
