JOHN MARSHALL JAZZ QUINTET
The Sunday Series is a great way to see the latest musicians, singers, poets, and cabaret acts in New York City. Scheduled throughout the year, these shows highlight the best work from new and established performers.
Sunday, August 17 at 7:00pm
The John Marshall Jazz Quintet will fill the June Havoc Theatre with the sound of Jazz for this one night only concert to benefit Abingdon Theatre Company.
Having learned his craft, with help from Ornette Coleman and Lonnie Hillyer, trumpeter John Marshall went on to work with a succession of big bands led by Buddy Rich, Mel Lewis, Lionel Hampton, Al Porcino, Gerry Mulligan and Dizzy Gillespie. In the late eighties John and pianist Tardo Hammer co-led the Bopera House, a standard-setting quintet which also featured tenor saxophonist Ralph Lalama. Originally from New York, John moved to Europe in 1992 and became a member of the brass section and featured soloist with the West Deutscher Rundfunk Big Band, based in Cologne, Germany, he is one of the brightest contemporary hard bop trumpet voices. John Marshall leads his own quintets in Europe and has put out seven CDs as a leader since 1992, and many more as a sideman. He now returns to New York for the month of August to appear at Abingdon Theatre with an amazing assembled group of jazz musicians.
Additional musicians are to be announced.
