Marcus Printup, Guest Artist

Born and raised in Conyers, Georgia, Marcus Printup's first musical experiences came from hearing the fiery gospel music his parents sang in church. He would later discover jazz as a senior in high school.

Marcus attended Georgia State University, then transferred to the University of North Florida on a music scholarship. It was during his studies there that he competed and won the prestigious International Trumpet Guild Jazz Trumpet Competition.

In 1991, Mr. Printup's life would change when he met his mentor and friend-to-be, the incomparable pianist Marcus Roberts. Mr. Roberts introduced him to world renowned trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis which in time led to the invitation to join the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1993. Marcus has been a member ever since.

Mr. Printup has performed and/or recorded with Betty Carter (he was inducted into Ms. Carter's first Jazz Ahead class in 1994), Dianne Reeves, Eric Reed, Cyrus Chestnut, Wycliffe Gordon, Marcus Roberts among many others.

Mr. Printup has led multiple recordings on several major record jazz labels:
Blue Note Records - Song for the Beautiful Woman, Unveiled, Hub Songs 
Nagel Heyer Records - The New Boogaloo
Steeplechase Records - Peace In The Abstract, Bird of Paradise, London Lullaby, Ballads All Night, A Time for Love, Homage, Desire, Lost, and his latest Young Bloods

Mr. Printup continues to be in demand as a facilitator/educator for masterclasses and clinics ranging from Middle Schools and High Schools to Universities nationally and abroad. He is an educator for JALC's Essentially Ellington competition and an adjunct faculty member at the New School in Manhattan.

In 2005, a proclamation was granted to Mr. Printup declaring August 22nd 'Marcus Printup Day' in his home town of Conyers, GA.

With his wife Riza Printup, the Printups created RiMarcable Publications through which they have published their first children's book and arrangements for big band and jazz combos. They also released their first jazz single for children on their label RiMarcable Notes. In 2016, the Printup's introduced their children's program I Have A Song Inside My Heart and partnered with WBGO's Kids Jazz @ Play and My Very Own Library in presenting their program to elementary schools around the Newark area.
