About the album

Thomas Marriott has, in a series of 10 beautifully executed and well received albums on Origin, more than proved his jazz credentials with formidable technique & fluency, celebration of the tradition and a deep joy of extemporaneous risk-taking. On this recording, however, Thomas strips things down to their essence, taking all he has accrued and employing it to delve deep into the heart, leaving us with only his beautiful sound and the truth of the stories being told. Wanting to create something beyond a jazz ballads album, Thomas and his producer, vibist Joe Locke, imagined something more operatic in nature, with each song resembling a free-standing aria. They teamed with pianist/composer Ryan Cohan to arrange and orchestrate this collection of ten classic & modern jazz compositions, popular tunes and several original works by Locke and Cohan, creating a sumptuous, glowing palette over which the melodies and solos can soar.
Thomas Marriott hat in einer Serie von 10 wunderschön ausgeführten und gut aufgenommenen Alben auf Origin seine Jazz-Kompetenz mit beeindruckender Technik und Gewandtheit, Würdigung der Tradition und einer tiefen Freude an improvisierten Risiken mehr als bewiesen. Auf dieser Aufnahme reduziert Thomas die Dinge jedoch auf ihre Essenz, nimmt alles, was er erworben hat und nutzt es, um tief ins Innere auf den Klang zu blicken. Thomas und sein Produzent Joe Locke wollten etwas jenseits eines Jazz-Balladenalbums verwirklichen und stellten sich dabei etwas Operngerechteres vor, wobei jeder Song einer freistehenden Arie glich. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Pianisten/Komponisten Ryan Cohan arrangierten und orchestrierten sie diese Sammlung von zehn klassischen und modernen Jazzkompositionen, populären Melodien und mehreren Originalwerken von Locke und Cohan und schufen eine üppige, leuchtende Palette, über die die Melodien und Solos schweben können.

The 1999 winner of the Carmine Caruso Jazz Trumpet Competition, Marriott is a true but subtle innovator with a luxuriously round tone, a unique sense of spontaneous and poignant melody, and a penchant for melancholic compositions that evoke an introspective mood. Marriott’s undeniable talent and versatility is the culmination of years of performance with some of the most well-respected names in music. On the heels of his win of the Carmine Caruso Jazz Trumpet Competition, Marriott moved to New York City where he gained unparalleled experience and national acclaim subbing with groups like the Tito Puente Orchestra, Chico O’Farrill Orchestra, and most notably, Maynard Ferguson’s Big Bop Nouveau Band—whom he joined for three world tours as a jazz soloist. Since, Marriott has continued to work on the road and in the studio with a range of artists such as Mike Clark, Rosemary Clooney, Ivan Neville, Eric Reed, Stix Hooper, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Liv Warfield, Steve Wilson, Charlie Hunter, Brian Lynch, Deltron 3030, Michael Feinstein, and many more. Marriott returned to his native Seattle in 2004 and has since released 13 albums for Origin Records, three of which made the top-ten on national jazz radio airplay charts, including the 2009 release East-West Trumpet Summit, which made it all the way to number one. Marriott’s music has also been featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition” and has gained critical praise world-wide, including the 2010 release Constraints and Liberations which garnered 4 ½ stars in Downbeat Magazine. Alongside his profound experience on-stage and in the studio, Marriott also works in the local jazz community as a catalyst and advocate. Marriott has served on the Board of Governors of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and the Board of Directors of Earshot Jazz, produced albums for artists like saxophonist Hadley Caliman and trumpeter Ray Vega, and was a featured soloist with Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra for twenty seasons. In 2021 Marriott founded Seattle Jazz Fellowship, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization with goals of building the local jazz community, increasing mentorship and lowering barrier to access the music as a performer and listener.

Ryan Cohan

Pianist/composer and Guggenheim Fellow Ryan Cohan has distinguished himself as a vital original voice to be heard amongst the elite young jazz artists on the global music scene today. Born June 6, 1971, Ryan was introduced to music very early in life by his mother, who was a music teacher as well as a classical pianist and guitarist. Although, he began reading music even sooner, his formal training began at age nine on the violin. A few years later he switched to the keyboard, and by his second year in high school, Ryan knew that he wanted a life dedicated to music and began an intense daily practice regimen at the piano.

Born June 6, 1971, Ryan was introduced to music very early in life by his mother, who was a music teacher as well as a classical pianist and guitarist. Although, he began reading music even sooner, his formal training began at age nine on the violin. A few years later he switched to the keyboard, and by his second year in high school, Ryan knew that he wanted a life dedicated to music and began an intense daily practice regimen at the piano.
Wanting to deepen his formal training led Ryan to DePaul University where he received his bachelor's of music degree in jazz performance in 1993. At DePaul, Ryan studied extensively with jazz pianist Larry Novak and arranger, producer Cliff Colnot; later he was tutored by improvisation guru David Bloom. During two summer breaks in college, Ryan received full scholarships from Blue Note Records to study at The Skidmore Jazz Institute in New York whose faculty included the late legend, Milt Hinton.
Concurrently, Ryan began making his mark on the Chicago music scene playing with the region's top jazz and Latin musicians. He has since performed with such luminaries and stellar ensembles as Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller, Joe Locke, Paquito D'Rivera, Jon Faddis, Kurt Elling, Pat La Barbera, Andy Narell, Regina Carter, Michal Urbaniak, Orbert Davis and The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, The Chicago Jazz Ensemble and The Chicago Chamber Musicians among many others. Ryan's diverse resume also includes a substantial list of commercial studio performing credits, arranging for the Grant Park Symphony with Otis Clay, and the music director position with the Chicago Human Rhythm Project.
As an educator, Ryan has been the assistant director of small and large jazz ensembles at The University Of Illinois at Chicago, faculty member of the Skidmore Jazz Institute in New York, and he continues to work as a jazz artist clinician at universities and high schools throughout the U.S and abroad.
