On Tuesday, March 22nd 2016 I have the privilege of playing some music with one of the finest piano trios in music – The Orrin Evans Trio with Luques Curtis and Mark Whitfield Jr. We’ll be heading into the studio the next day to play some new originals in the studio. Hope you can make it!
This month marks the release of the brand new East-West Trumpet Summit album featuring myself and fellow trumpeter Ray Vega along with George Collegian on B-3 organ and drummer Matt Jorgensen. Our first release came in 2010 and shot all the way to the number one spot on the Jazz Week airplay chart within a few short weeks. We are very excited for this release!

On December 16th I’m celebrating my 40th birthday (and 33rd year playing the trumpet) with a new project: The ‘Ceptet. I hope you will join me and the band at the Royal Room on 12-16 at 7:30, all ages, no cover (suggested donation only). It’s gonna be HOT!!
On October 9th & 10th Thomas Marriott will join forces with McTuff, Seattle’s funkiest B-3 organ trio as part of the 2015 Earshot Jazz Festival. Both shows are at Tula’s Jazz Club & Restaurant and more information about tickets and reservations can be found HERE.
I am very excited to announce that the brand new East-West Trumpet summit album is nearly complete. It’s been a year in the making, but we’re almost to the finish line. In 2010 trumpeter Ray Vega and I teamed up for the album East-West Trumpet Summit. We were elated to find this album reach all the way to number one on the JazzWeek airplay chart, and to hear it featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Last year we started work on a second trumpet summit album, this time featuring George Colligan on Hammond B-3 organ and Matt Jorgensen on drums. We think it sounds great – we can’t wait to let you hear it! More to come soon, stay tuned!
