Trumpeter Marquis Hill leaves a great impression with the way he connects jazz to spoken word, hip-hop and contemporary beats and breaks. In his Blacktet he plays with musicians from his native Chicago. These musicians can improvise on dazzling grooves, but they also translate standards and more obscure gems from jazz history to the present.

Marquis Hill, one of the most promising American jazz players, combines jazz with contemporary beats. Former band member of Marcus Miller. ‘A dauntingly skilled trumpeter’ (New York Times).
