Marquis Hill: New Gospel Revisited - San Jose Jazz

Marquis Hill: New Gospel Revisited

Winter Fest
Sun, Feb 20
8pm showtime (Pacific)
$25–35 / SJZ Break Room

From his beginnings as one of Chicago’s most thrilling young trumpeters to his current status as an internationally renowned musician, composer and bandleader Marquis Hill has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. For Winter Fest 2022 he previews his soon-to-be-released New Gospel Revisited album with an all-star quartet featuring Kendrick Scott, Jahari Stampley and Joshua Crumbly.

Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul—to Marquis, they’re all essential elements of the profound African-American creative heritage he’s a part of. That mission to bring styles together, complemented by his absolute mastery of his instrument, is a through line connecting his many achievements. 

It can be heard on his latest album, Modern Flows Vol. II, with its seamless blend of jazz interplay, hip-hop-infused rhythms and socially conscious spoken-word. It’s integral to The Way We Play, his Concord Jazz debut from 2016, where Marquis and his musicians reinvent jazz standards using their generation’s wide- ranging influences. It marks the four records he self-released before November of 2014, when he won the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz competition (formerly the Thelonius Monk Institute) and became a presence on the global scene virtually overnight. And it defines the revelatory live performances by his longtime working group, the Blacktet, which the Chicago Tribune has called “a remarkably polished, immensely attractive ensemble.”
