Marquis Hill

“a standard which those other young jazz musicians on the scene can look up to” – All About Jazz


He started out as one of Chicago’s most thrilling young trumpeters. Now he’s an internationally renowned musician, composer and bandleader. Additionally, Marquis Hill has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. Furthermore, he synthesizes essential elements of the profound African American creative heritage he’s a part of. Hill’s music encompasses contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house and neo-soul. “It all comes from the same tree,” he says. “They simply blossomed from different branches.”

His mission to bring styles together, complemented by his absolute mastery of his instrument, connects his many achievements. Further, his inventive and creative sets feature a seamless blend of jazz interplay, hip-hop-infused rhythms and socially conscious spoken word.

For Hill, playing and listening without limits has long been an instinct. “It comes naturally, that’s how I hear the music,” he explains. “Motown, R&B, Isley Brothers… Lee Morgan… I truly believe that the music is all the same. “

Additionally, Hill’s rise to prominence began when he won the 2014 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz competition. Then, he became a presence on the global scene virtually overnight. Downbeat’s storied Critics Poll named him the top “Rising Star–Trumpet” in 2016. Also, throughout his journey, he has supported and guested with a who’s who of jazz. To that end, he’s worked with Marcus Miller, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Boney James, Kurt Elling, Joe Lovano and Makaya McCraven.

2022’s New Gospel Revisited is a live recording that revisits and reinterprets his debut 2012 album New Gospel. Now, he sets his sights even higher. New Gospel Revisited is an extraordinary live recording that reimagines his debut as a leader.
