Biography

top
 

John Marshall was born in Wantagh, NY in 1952. From 1971 to 1991, he worked and recorded with a long list of jazz greats. Buddy Rich, Mel Lewis, Lionel Hampton, Gerry Mulligan, Ornette Coleman, George Coleman, Buck Clayton, Mario Bauza and Dizzy Gillespie, to name only a few. Along the way, he constantly worked at perfecting his craft, studying with the great brass teacher Carmine Caruso as well as jazz trumpeter Lonnie Hillyer. He also led the Jazz quintet “The Bopera House” from 1987 to 1991, and stayed very busy as an in-demand studio player.

From 1992 to 2017 John was an important soloist in the West Deutscher Rundfunk Big Band, based in Cologne, Germany, recording many CDs and performing internationally. Concurrently, he toured and recorded in New York and around the world with his quartet and quintet. He has released twelve CDs as a leader and many more as a featured guest. In 2016 and 2017, he toured Russia six times with the Classic Jazz Trio. Their new CD will be out shortly. In recent years Marshall has developed into a convincing vocalist, alongside his masterful trumpet and flugelhorn playing.

Having completed his contract with WDR, he is now available full-time on a freelance basis.

Since 1996, John has released eight CDs as a leader or co-leader and several more as a specially featured guest. Meanwhile, his reputation has continued to grow through the many concerts and CDs of the WDR Big Band.
