Thomas Marriott’s Trumpet Ship
October 4 @ 7:30 pm
Thomas Marriott is the winner of seven Golden Ear Awards and the 1999 Carmine Caruso Jazz Trumpet Competition. He’s paid dues beside jazz elders such as Maynard Ferguson, Roy McCurdy, and Rosemary Clooney, and has been called on by contemporary standard-bearers like Joe Locke, Orrin Evans, Steve Wilson, John Clayton and Charlie Hunter. A chameleon of musical styles, Marriott’s horn has been in-demand with bands like the Grammy-Award winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstafunk, and hip-hop pioneer Deltron 3030. His albums have reached number one on the jazz radio airplay charts and have been featured on NPR. Thomas Marriott has spent more than 20 seasons as a soloist with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra and is a Yamaha Performing Artist.
