In his ninth album as a leader, trumpeter Thomas Marriott brings forth a musical collection of personal, yet commonly shared stories of frustrations, fears, hopes and joys – the stories we tell each other to connect to one another. Music has always been about story-telling and with Urban Folklore, Marriott spins his tales of modern day society and life in our present times with intensity, humor and nuance. Utilizing the trumpet-quartet format to maximum effect, Urban Folklore is a powerful new statement on life and the human condition.
