Chicago native trumpeter Marquis Hill was the winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition in 2014. In 2016, he was voted Rising Star-Trumpet in the Downbeat Critics Poll. He is widely recognized as one of the preeminent voices on the instrument of his generation. The Chicago Tribune asserts that “his music crystallizes the hard-hitting, hard-swinging spirit of Chicago jazz.” Hill makes his first Houston appearance with his ensemble The Blacktet.
At Oxford at Country Club Apartments in Baytown, Texas, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
