David Marriott, Jr.

Described by one reviewer as a “canny and imaginative player whose solos display an extraordinary sense of architecture and conception”, award-winning trombonist David Marriott is a musician for the next generation - equally at home as a performer, composer, arranger, and educator. David is co-leader, with brother Thomas, of the Marriott Jazz Quintet, which gained early acclaim for its first CD, Open Season (1997). The group was voted the Best Emerging Group by Earshot Jazz that same year, and Best Acoustic Jazz Group in 1999. Open Season and The High Country , their second CD, have been featured on Jim Wilke's NPR's Jazz After Hours by host Jim Wilke, who picked both as among the top CDs in the Northwest when released. David, who also produced both CDs, wrote and arranged much of the music on them. David also received critical acclaim for his CD project Septology: In The Beginning, a seven-part jazz suite he composed for septet, based on the seven days of creation. Both The High Country and Septology: In the Beginning garnered four stars from the prestigious All-Music Guide.
