While attending the University of North Florida on a music scholarship, Marcus Printup won the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Trumpet Competition. In 1991, Mr. Printup’s life changed drastically when he met his mentor to this day, the great pianist Marcus Roberts. Mr. Roberts introduced him to Wynton Marsalis, which led to his induction into the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1993. Mr. Printup has performed and/or recorded with Betty Carter, Dianne Reeves, Eric Reed, Cyrus Chestnut, Wycliffe Gordon, Marcus Roberts among many others. He has several records as a leader, Song for the Beautiful Woman, Unveiled, Hub Songs, Nocturnal Traces, The New Boogaloo, Peace In The Abstract, Bird of Paradise, London Lullaby, Ballads All Night and his latest, A Time for Love.
