The Royal Room Columbia City
Wed., Dec. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2015 All Ages
Thomas Marriott gathers a who's who of local jazz talent for a groovy time at the Royal Room, including Tarik Abuzied, Tim Kennedy, Skerik, Mark Taylor, and Farko Dusamov. Put it in your ears.
To celebrate his 40th time around the center of the solar system, and 33 years of learning and playing music, local jazz trumpeter Thomas Marriott is presenting a new project tonight called: The ‘Ceptet. This will certainly be a good show for the simple reason Marriott is a solid trumpeter. He has a very clear and technically flawless style. He almost never disappoints. To get a good idea of his sound and mastery, I recommend listening to his 2014 recording Urban Folklore, an album that rightly received lots of praise from regional and national jazz critics. CM
