Now in its tenth year, San Jose Jazz’s Winter Fest is currently in full crescendo, and Chicago-born trumpeter Marquis Hill arrives right in the middle on the West Coast tour for his upcoming album, New Gospel Revisited. His 2020 release Soul Sign took listeners on a genre-transcending cosmic voyage, with each song on the tape corresponding to the signs of the zodiac, collaborating with astrologers on spoken word pieces over celestial beats. Hill performs at the Break Room with his longtime crew The Blacktet: drummer Kendrick Scott, keyboard player Jahari Stampley and bassist Joshua Crumbly.
