In the second collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center, JaLC trumpeter, Marcus Printup will lead an ensemble as he explores his own musical heritage through the greats that came before him.
Marcus Printup was born and raised in Conyers, Georgia. His first musical experiences were hearing the fiery gospel music his parents sang in church. While attending the University of North Florida on a music scholarship, he won the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Trumpet competition. In 1991 Printup’s life changed when he met his mentor, the great pianist Marcus Roberts. Roberts introduced him to Wynton Marsalis, which led to Printup’s induction into the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1993. Printup has recorded with Betty Carter, Dianne Reeves, Eric Reed, Madeline Peyroux, Ted Nash, Cyrus Chestnut, Wycliffe Gordon, and Roberts, among others. He has recorded several records as a leader: Song for the Beautiful Woman, Unveiled, Hub Songs, Nocturnal Traces, The New Boogaloo, Peace in the Abstract, Bird of Paradise, London Lullaby Ballads All Night, and A Time for Love. He made his screen debut in the 1999 movie Playing by Heart and recorded on the film’s soundtrack. August 22 has been declared “Marcus Printup Day” in his hometown of Conyers, Georgia.
