The Marques Carroll Quintet-Quartet-Trio is currently working on new original music for an upcoming CD to be released within the next year.
The trumpet summit
The Trumpet Summit is an ensemble that focuses on the music of the great trumpet sounds of Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Dorham, Clifford Brown, Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton and more while still carving out its own styles and sounds each trumpeter brings to the stage. The steady lineup of Victor Garcia (trp), Quentin Coaxum (trp), Marcin Fahmy (p), Andrew Vogt (b) and Isaiah Spencer (dr) makes for a great musical experience.

This year Marques was asked to join the Count Basie Orchestra after his first tour in Tokyo, Japan at the Blue Note. He joins the section with Mike Williams (lead), Kris Johnson (2nd) and Endre Rice (3rd).
