A triumphant return to to Turner Sims for trumpeter Marquis Hill, who last lit up our stage in 2019. 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 has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul—to Hill, they’re all essential elements of the profound African-American creative heritage he’s a part of. ‘It all comes from the same tree,’ he says. ‘They simply blossomed from different branches.’

Tonight he presents music from his new album released on Edition Records, New Gospel Revisited. The album reimagines his 2012 debut release as a leader with a new band, re-energising the sound that introduced him to the world as a leading voice in his generation of musicians.

Marquis writes: … New Gospel was my debut album and my first completed production. To revisit this music in a fresh way, with a new band has been uniquely invigorating — and hugely rewarding.
