Original show description below.

Winner of the 2014 Thelonious Monk International Trumpet Competition, Chicago-born trumpeter Marquis Hill has, in a comparatively short time, established his well-deserved reputation as a leading figure among today’s crop of adventurous young jazz musicians. He returns with a fresh take on the music from his 2012 debut New Gospel, with a decade of experience and perspective informing the album’s finely wrought compositions.

A singular artist with a warm, soul-drenched sound and an advanced command of composition, the 29-year-old Hill accepted the prestigious Monk honor as an acknowledgment of a major career already in progress rather than the first spark from a neophyte, with four albums as a leader already under his belt, and a distinctive ensemble approach firmly established. The trumpeter applied the foundations he built with mentors Willie Pickens and Bobby Broom to sideman work with the likes of Benny Golson, Steve Turre, Joe Lovano, Ron Carter, Marcus Miller, and Makaya McCraven and is paying it forward as an educator, teaching at University of Illinois at Chicago and NIU Summer Jazz Camp.

Hill’s 2022 Edition Records recording of this project, New Gospel Revisited, was recorded live at Chicago’s Constellation and features a staggering lineup including saxophonist Walter Smith III, vibraphonist Joel Ross, pianist James Francies, bassist Harish Raghavan, and SFJAZZ Collective drummer Kendrick Scott.
