Marc Caparone

Redwood Coast Music Festival 2019 Performing Artist

We're pleased to once again welcome Marc Caparone to Redwood Coast Music Festival for 2019.  Widely recognized as one of the finest traditional jazz trumpet players in the country. Marc will be appearing with Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang, Carl Sonny Leyland's House Party with Little Charlie Baty and other guest appearances.


The son of a jazz trombonist, Marc has been listening to classic jazz his entire life. A specialist in the jazz trumpet styles of the 1920s and '30s, he started a deep interest in jazz history when he began collecting records in his early teens.  


His first job in a jazz band was at the age of 15, and since then he has performed and recorded with many groups around the world.  In 1999 he researched and produced the album Music Of The Bolden Era for Stomp Off Records, recreating the music of Buddy Bolden’s band.  


He has also recorded with Hal Smith’s Rhythmakers, Narvin Kimball’s All Stars, Carl Sonny Leyland, Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band, the New El Dorado Jazz Band, the Reynolds Brothers, the High Sierra Jazz Band and Barbara Dane, as well as with his own groups and with his wife, vocalist Dawn Lambeth.  


Marc currently plays trumpet with the High Sierra Jazz Band, Carl Sonny Leyland’s House Party and the Ivory Club Boys.  His goal is to carry on the traditions of the great early jazz trumpet players.
