Here’s some grown folk ish for ya ears. Winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition, Chicago-native and trumpet extraordinaire Marquis Hill released his album Modern Flows Vol. 1 late last year. Featuring ten original competitions, the album displays a wide range of the musician’s influences.
Today, we have for you the first song, “Modern Flows Intro” with spoken word vocals by South African poet Tumelo Khoza. Listen and get sucked into the words and melody of what looks to be a well-composed, powerful album.
