What Others Say:
“While jazz can be too mellow for some and too erratic for others, MarQuis has created a blend between melodic smooth modern jazz combined with the intricacies of classic jazz and the soul of R&B that appeals to a much broader range of musical tastes.” – Bob Rife – Jazz musician, professor and author
“When MarQuis performs, he doesn’t play music; he is music. MarQuis plays with his entire heart and soul and he leaves nothing on the stage. MarQuis’ technique and skill are obvious, but his talent doesn’t end there. Music is supposed to touch the listener, make the listener feel something, to form a connection to the performer. Only a true artist can elicit that type of response. That is something that cannot be taught and is a gift few artists possess.” Ann Mitchell – Jazz aficionado and event producer
