Chicago based trumpeter Marques Carroll is keeping the tradition of jazz alive while pushing the genre forward into exciting new territory. A bold performer and passionate educator, he is dedicated to preserving the authentic culture of jazz and spreading his holistic love of music around the world. Born into a musical family in St. Louis, Marques fell in love with the trumpet when he was only 8 years old. His grandfather worked with jazz legend Clark Terry who would become a major influence on the young musician. Marques grew up absorbing the blues of Louis Armstrong and the laid back sounds of Miles Davis, eventually going on to study jazz performance at DePaul University. He expanded his palette to include classical and hip-hop influences, making him a thoroughly modern and versatile musician.
Marques has worked and shared the stage with jazz powerhouses like Carmen Bradford, Dee Dee Bridgewater (Count Basie Band), Etienne Charles, Christian McBride, Jon Faddis, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Randy Weston (Chicago Jazz Ensemble). Marques’ compositions are soulful explorations of culture and consciousness. A storyteller at heart, he uses his horn to break down barriers between genres, writing evocative music that speaks directly to the soul. “Every instrument plays a character,” Marques says, describing his methods. “I want people to open their minds to what the story is about. Every piece I write is purposeful.”
In addition to his prolific performing career, Marques is an accomplished and passionate educator. He has held the role of musical director at Chicago Jesuit Academy (CJA) for 16 years. CJA is on the west side of Chicago and has been a driving force in providing inner city Chicago kids with music education. Marques is also connected with Bandwidth Chicago and Loyola School in Baltimore which provide education in the arts for under-resourced Chicago and Baltimore communities. Marques currently teaches Jazz Trumpet and coaches combos at the University in Chicago and regularly holds clinics and master classes around the country. In addition to his current educational roles, Marques is the leader of his own self-titled quintet, the Trumpet Summit and co-leader of the Chicago Soul Jazz Collective, and also a permanent sub-member of The Count Basie Orchestra. His solo debut record, The Ancestors’ Call, and his sequel to his debut record, Foundations, are now available everywhere via his own cofounded label, JMarq Records.
