Marcus Rabb

Marcus Rabb, a native of Baltimore, began music studies at a young age and was playing trumpet in area jazz bands by the time he entered high school. He received a full music scholarship to Howard University, where he honed his career as a performer and composer and earned his master's degree. On a fellowship he studied chamber music at the American Conservatory of Music in Fountainebleau, France.

Rabb has performed with such top jazz luminaries as Wynton Marsalis, Milt Jackson, Nestor Torres and Joe Henderson and is also a noted composer and arranger.

On the performance side, he leads the Marcus Rabb Quintet and is a member of VI Art Ensemble. Performing regularly with the Marcus Rabb Quintet, and also as a member of the VI Arts Ensemble, Rabb's delightful mastery of the trumpet can be experienced at many of the Virgin Island's top Jazz venues.

Marcus settled on St. Croix in 1997, after being drawn to the Caribbean lifestyle as a visiting jazz artist for numerous performances. He has an established career in music education on St. Croix and is currently on the Country Day School faculty as Director of Choral Music. He is working on his first album as a leader with an expected release date of late 2004.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
