Description: Thelonious Monk Award Winner and trumpeter Marquis Hill's Blacktet swings super-hard and its grooves use elements of hip hop, hard bop and swing. The ensemble's touch is light and its use of dynamics and space makes the music very easy to listen to. Hill's band presents the new Chicago sound but, even more, he has created something unique, compelling and very fresh. The Blacktet gives us a new paradigm of jazz that will take us into the future.
