About Markus Rutz: 

For over three decades, the musical discoveries continue for Chicago-born jazz composer and trumpeter, Markus Rutz. 

 As described by Downbeat’s J.D. Considine, with his “big, dark tone and a fluid ease to his phrasing,” trumpet player, composer and bandleader, Markus regularly delights audiences in venues throughout his hometown and across the United States.

Markus Rutz leads the band for this Quintet performance.  The trumpeter and composer brings a melodious pen to his original compositions and plays with a tone that has been called gorgeous.
The two volumes of Blueprints on Origin Records from his last studio recording project featured Markus with Chicago contemporaries and guest saxophonist Brice Winston.  This project organically evolved into his most recent project as Composer-in-Residence for The Rose Theatre based out of Washington DC.  The collaboration features music arrangement and performances on monthly episodes of The Rose Rhapsody.  For this performance, the band is set to present music representing these projects and likely reviews of a forthcoming album for 2022!  
Perennial musical associate in the quintet and with the podcast is pianist Adrian Ruiz.
Renowned Chicago saxophonist John Wojicielchoski will join the band for this engagement.
Joshua Ramos is bassist contributing his pulse and groove in the rhythm section.
Percussionist Kyle Swan has been integral in recording and performances for the past year.
