Marquis Hill has something special on tap with his forthcoming CD Modern Flows Vol II: Eighteen orig­inal pieces that, when combined with compelling guest performances, state the Chicago trumpet dyna­mo’s case for the depth from which the great African–American musical genres continue to grow. In addition to the working band that will appear on our stage this week, Modern Flows Vol. II features contributions from saxophonist/vocalist Braxton Cook, writer and MC Brandon Alexander Williams, and Windy City poet/activist M'reld Green. As for Marquis Hill, time and effort have only bur­nished his golden sound: “His articulation, precise but unlabored, calls to mind the precedent of Clifford Brown, while his bravura phrasing suggests an equal immersion in Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw.” (Jazz Times)

Marquis Hill – trumpet 
Braxton Cook  – alto saxophone
Joel Ross – vibraphone

Jonathan Pinson – drums
