Marquis Hill Blacktet—From the Archives

Two years ago, Trumpet Marquis Hill and his “blacktet” performed an exclusive set at KNKX Public Radio, the world headquarters of Jazz24. The performance is lush, beautiful, meditative at times, and pulsing even at a slow-mid-tempo. Hill’s lyrical melodicism powers the Blacktet.

Enjoy this trip into the archives and then explore the hundreds of exclusive studio session videos we have on YouTube.

KNKX Studio Sessions are recorded and produced live in our Seattle studios. Listeners may also subscribe to our Studio Sessions podcast with Apple, Google, or Spotify.
