“I Knew It Then”
A group capable of producing moments of frightening power and striking sensitivity, the Steve Marquette Quintet (formed 2012) features the talents of New Orleans musicians Jeff Albert (trombone), Brad Walker (saxophone), Jesse Morrow (bass) and Marcello Benetti (drums). Though primarily showcasing Marquette’s compositions, their democratic nature provide a vehicle for all the musicians to inform and alter the shape of each piece. Drawing upon free jazz, collective improvisation, noise / rock and other strains of the jazz tradition their debut recording, “I Knew it Then” (2013), also marks the first release on Two Cities Records – a record label started by Marquette dedicated to documenting Chicago and New Orleans’ improvising music communities.
