Ken Dryden of AllAboutJazz has once described Marcus Printup as “an open-minded player who gives his all in any setting.”
In this his latest album the setting is a fertile ground for a trumpeter. Printup pays profound tribute to a dozen of the most significant and influential tumpeters of our time.
“Marcus reveres those trumpeters who came before, along with those contemporaries still making their mark. He is a vitally important participant in the long and impressive tradition celebrated in this landmark CD.” (Mark Gardner – from the liner notes)
Recorded December 2010.
