18th Street Art Center Presents: Marquis Hill

While New Orleans is the hometown of the early trumpet kings Joe Oliver and Louis Armstrong, in fact Oliver and Armstrong became famous in Chicago, the next great city in jazz history. Chicago once again can boast of a new king, for one of their own, standout trumpeter Marquis Hill, is the latest winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. He has since moved to NYC but is currently in L.A. for a month long artist-in-residency courtesy of the 18th Street Art Center. Hill will go deep-dish with a band featuring drummer Christian Euman, bassist Jonathan Roberts, and fellow Chicago natives (but current Angelenos) Jeff Parker (guitar) and Josh Johnson (alto sax).
Mon., Feb. 16, 9 p.m.-midnight, 2015 (Expired: 02/16/15)
