Marcus Printup, born and raised in Conyers, Georgia, had his first musical experiences hearing the fiery gospel music his parents sang in church, and later discovered jazz as a senior in high school. While attending the University of North Florida on a music scholarship, he won the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Trumpet competition. In 1991, Printup’s life changed dramatically when he met his mentor this day, the great pianist Marcus Roberts, who introduced him to Wynton Marsalis, leading to his induction into the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1993. Conyers has since honored him with the celebration of “Marcus Printup Day” on August 22 annually.
Printup has performed and/or recorded with Roberts, Betty Carter, Dianne Reeves, Eric Reed, Cyrus Chestnut, Wycliffe Gordon, among others. He has several records as a leader, Song for the Beautiful Woman, Unveiled, Hub Songs, Nocturnal Traces, Peace in the Abstract, and his most recent, Bird of Paradise. He made his screen debut in the 1999 movie Playing by Heart and recorded on the film’s soundtrack.
He tours annually with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, spending one-third of his year touring world wide. Printup has an interest in teaching youth and experienced musicians and contributes to several camps annually. But tonight, expect fiery swingin’!
