Marquis Hill

Marquis Hill won the “triple crown” of trumpet: the 2012 International Trumpet Guild Jazz Improvisation Competition, the 2013 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition and the 2014 Thelonious Monk International Trumpet Competition. In addition to teaching and composing, Hill tours and records with his volcanic “Blacktet.” The ensemble includes an enviable list of rising stars –alto saxophonist Christopher McBride, vibraphonist Justin Thomas, bassist Joshua Ramos, and drummer Makaya McCraven
