Trumpeter Thomas Marriott hits the road this weekend performing for two nights at The Cellar in Vancouver, BC, before returning home for his CD Release Party next Tuesday, May 12, at The Triple Door.
TUESDAY, MAY 12 - THE TRIPLE DOOR
216 Union Street
Seattle, WA 98101
featuring: Thomas Marriott
- trumpet Mark Taylor
- saxophone Bill Anschell
- piano Jeff Johnson
- bass John Bishop
From Freddie Hubbard’s burner “Take it to the Ozone,” to the moody and spare reading of Elvis Costello’s “Almost Blue,” Flexicon’s unified yet eclectic mix further solidifies Marriott’s standing as one of the finer voices in jazz today both as a trumpeter and producer. Along with his band of saxophonist Mark Taylor, pianist Bill Anschell, bassist Jeff Johnson, drummer Matt Jorgensen and special guest Joe Locke on vibes, Marriott visits jazz classics such as Spring Is Here and Detour Ahead, pop tunes from Costello and John Barry, and a trio of thoughtful originals.
From AllAboutJazz.com: Marriott’s first solo suggests he should be mentioned in the same breath with Wynton Marsalis and Terence Blanchard in terms of purity of tone and control of his instrument.
