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
Tickets: 206-838-4333

featuring:
Thomas Marriott - trumpet
Mark Taylor - saxophone
Bill Anschell - piano
Jeff Johnson - bass
John Bishop - drums

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
