Nicholas Marchione Biography
At age 26, trumpet player Nick Marchione is an active freelancer in New York City and holds down some of the most coveted chairs in his profession, including lead trumpet in the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and The Producers on Broadway.
Born into a musical family in Philadelphia, Nick started his trumpet studies at age eight with his father, Tony Marchione, a renowned teacher whose pupils included Randy Brecker and Lee Morgan. He subsequently studied with Vince Penzarella at the Mannes College of Music before becoming a member of Blood, Sweat and Tears in 2001, a position he held until 2006.
Nick has played and recorded with such legends as Slide Hampton, McCoy Tyner, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson, Jimmy Heath, Bob Brookmeyer, Natalie Cole, and James Moody, to name a few.
Most recently Nick played lead alongside Snooky Young in the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra at Washington D.C’s Kennedy Center and performed with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra (VJO) at the Bermuda Jazz Festival. The VJO, whose latest CD, Up from the Skies: Music of Jim McNeely, was nominated for two Grammys, toured Europe and Scandinavia this past summer.
An avid educator, Nick has given masterclasses throughout the United States and Canada. He was a featured guest clinician for the Orquestra Jazz Matosinhos in Portugal twice this past year. Nick is also frequently requested to play movie soundtracks and jingles. He can be heard playing lead trumpet in the movie soundtrack of The Producers, several commercials for Coke and Pepsi, and the upcoming Disney production of The Little Mermaid, which opens on Broadway in October.
