Thomas Marriott 's Biography

Trumpeter, composer, and producer Thomas Marriott is a force for jazz on the West Coast. He's paid his dues playing beside jazz elders such as Maynard Ferguson, Roy McCurdy, Mike Clark, and Stix Hooper, and has been called on by contemporary standard-bearers like Joe Locke, Orrin Evans, Steve Wilson, and Charlie Hunter.

His albums, 14 in all, have reached number one on the jazz radio airplay charts, earned 4 1/2 stars in DownBeat, and have been featured on NPR. Thomas Marriott spent more than 20 seasons as a soloist with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra and is founder of Seattle Jazz Fellowship, a non-profit arts organization dedicated to promoting jazz music and jazz culture in Seattle.
