Nextbop Interviews Marquis Hill

Sébastien Hélary

Trumpeter and sensei Marquis Hill is set to drop a brand new EP, aka bomb, on us December 1st. Meditation Tape EP is a seven-track succinct endeavor rooted in jazz and hip hop but most importantly branching out, as hinted by the title, into spirituality. Each track of the instrumental beat tape is followed by an excerpt from an interview with Sun Ra drummer Marvin “Bugalu” Smith. I caught up with Hill to discuss music, life, and spirituality in the context of this low-key albeit very important opus of his. If you happen to be in Chi-Town on Friday, make sure to catch Hill at The Promontory for a very special post-Thanksgiving live performance.


While we have you attention, we have a small favor to ask of you...

Nextbop has been working hard to promote new and innovative types of jazz music since 2009, but given our niche status we simply cannot survive on banner advertising, especially in this age of Adblock. This is why we have created a Patreon campaign to collect monthly donations from our fans. This has become our primary source of income. If you value the work we do, you can help for as little as $1 per month. This would make a huge difference in assuring proper wages for our writers and would give us the opportnity to create better more in-depth content for you, our readers.
