Thomas Marriott, “Flexicon”

From Freddie Hubbard’s burner “Take it to the Ozone,” to the moody and spare reading of Elvis Costello’s “Almost Blue,” Flexicon’s unified yet eclectic mix further solidifies Marriott’s standing as one of the finer voices in jazz today both as a trumpeter and producer. Along with his band of saxophonist Mark Taylor, pianist Bill Anschell, bassist Jeff Johnson, drummer Matt Jorgensen and special guest Joe Locke on vibes, Marriott visits jazz classics such as Spring Is Here and Detour Ahead, pop tunes from Costello and John Barry, and a trio of thoughtful originals.
