Trumpeter Marlin McKay just might be the best kept jazz secret in the Midwest!
A recent graduate of Indiana University’s legendary program, the Jacob’s School of Music, Marlin has continued to grow as a musician, topping his personal best year after year. While studying jazz in Bloomington, Marlin blossomed under the tutelage of the esteemed Dr. David Baker, and garnered a reputation for delivering captivating solos while performing in the critically acclaimed Baker Band.
His reputation in the Midwest has made him a household name and left a distinct impression on those lucky enough to have witnessed his development over the years. Marlin’s unforced blowing style and affinity for graceful melodies reflects the influence of his two favorite trumpeters – Nicholas Payton and Tom Harrell, and his love of hard bop makes him a natural choice to present jazz to listeners and aficionados both young and old.
Marlin has relished in national and international acclaim having recently placed, First Runner Up, in the National Trumpet Competition Jazz Division, and has also been a participant in the prestigious jazz residencies of the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program, as well as, the Stean’s Institute for Young Artists, located in Washington D.C. and Ravinia Illinois respectively, where he had the privilege of learning from some of the most prolific and successful jazz musicians in history, most notably, Curtis Fuller, Dr. Nathan Davis, George Cables, Carmen Lundy, Rufus Reid, James Moody, and Dr. David Baker .
He has recorded one album under his own name, “Deep in the Cosmos,” and is currently working on his sophomore recording entitled, “the Look,” which is scheduled to be released fall of 2010. Marlin has been a featured soloist on a number of side projects and recordings, having performed with such jazz and blues luminaries as: Rob Dixon and Triology, Tad Robinson, Mikel Avery & the Every People Jazz Workshop, John Proulx, Greg Osby, Lummie Spann Jr., Melvin Rhyne, Jesse Palter, “Baron” John Von Ohlen, Ben Williams, and Dave Lisik.
