Genre: Jazz | Label: Concord Jazz
On his Concord debut, trumpeter Marquis Hill presents his own late modern spin on Jazz standards, capturing the essence of this rich oral tradition but with a post-modern and authentically African approach. He hopes to produce a real 'standards record' but, freshly, with his regular ensemble, the "BlackTet" which consists of Christopher McBride on alto sax, Justin Thomas on vibes, Makaya McCraven on drums and Joshua Ramos on bass. Special guests include Christie Dashiell, Vincent Gardner, Harold Green III and Juan Pastor. Hill was the winner of the 2014 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.
