Thelonious Monk Trumpet Competition Winner Marquis Hill Playing San Diego This Week

For the past five years, 30-year-old trumpeter, Marquis Hill, has been invigorating the Chicago jazz scene with his sleek approach to modern jazz, which often incorporates elements of spoken word and hip-hop. And this week he’s bringing his incredible talent to San Diego!

With his longstanding quintet, Blacktet (consisting of alto saxophonist Christopher McBride, vibraphonist Justin Thomas, drummer Makaya McCraven, and bassist Joshua Ramos), Hill recently released his album The Way We Play, an homage to his formative years in Chicago through stirring makeovers of jazz standards.
