"Yakima" by Thomas Marriott
About the Album
From the first track, it is apparent that Marriott belongs to a select group of elite trumpet players capable of the speed & precision, tonal purity, and advanced logic displayed on an uptempo take of "You Don't Know What Love Is." Along with the wildly creative organist Gary Versace, drummer Matt Jorgensen, and saxophonist Mark Taylor, he explores that classic along with a haunting "Low Key Lightly" by Duke Ellington and Miles Davis' "The Brown Hornet," to complement several originals. Marriott again assembles another finely crafted recording, full of swing, heart, and surprises.
