Now Hear This: Marquis Hill | Soul Sign

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Trumpeter, composer and producer Marquis Hill has released a 12-track cosmic musical journey through the Zodiac in the form of a spoken word-infused beat tape.

Says Hill: “A yearning to learn more about the Zodiac — types and celestial influence for The Good — I’ve been inspired toward a fresh project. In its place, this extended spiritual knowledge of self is crucial in our lifetime. Collaborating with astrologers Mecca Woods and Boro the Lucky Libra — both hailing from the Bronx — we developed tracks that musically impressionize each Zodiac sign.

“Here, jazz, spoken word and hip-hop orbit and dances together. Each track is quite different, consistent with the often vast differences among the Zodiac signs and their types. Recorded during quarantine life, in Boston, NYC, and Chicago, this project underscores resilient elementals, energies in terms of fire, water, air and earth.”
