Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Marquis Hill Blacktet with special guest Willie Pickens

With trumpeter Marquis Hill, alto saxophonist Braxton Cook, vibraphonist Joel Ross, bassist Jeremiah Hunt, drummer Jonathan Pinson, and pianist Willie Pickens

Trumpeter Marquis Hill, already a local hero in Chicago, has gained even more recognition throughout the jazz world since winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition in 2014. Hill’s primary band, his Blacktet, is a superb young group with a tightly knit sound representative of their considerable performance experience. With original compositions boasting memorable melodies, exciting solos, and a kinetic, propulsive rhythm section, the Blacktet is an easy recommendation for both classic jazz fans and those interested in contemporary fusions increasingly explored by young, genre-crossing composers. Joining the Blacktet tonight is a very special guest and one of Hill’s personal mentors: 86-year-old pianist Willie Pickens. This extraordinary collaboration will be at Dizzy’s for two nights only, so don’t miss out!
