Marquis Hill

DACAMERA returns to the concert hall with HOUSTON SUMMERJAZZ 2021

Since his first DACAMERA appearance, Chicago native trumpeter Marquis Hill has become a breakout star. His recording Love Tape was named a Best of 2019 in The New York Times. Hill returns with an exceptionally strong lineup featuring two fellow Chicagoans, vibraphonist Joel Ross and bass player Junius Paul, and two Houston natives, saxophonist Walter Smith III and drummer Kendrick Scott.

“Together with Marquis Hill and his trumpet, New Jazz rises on the throne of modern mainstream.” — Modern Jazz

“His performances and recordings reveal a smart post-bop player who circumvents genre clichés by incorporating elements of hip-hop and contemporary R. & B.” – The New Yorker
