Joseph Marshall Jr. (December 7, 1913 – June 1, 1992) was an American jazz drummer.

Early life[edit]

Marshall was born in Pensacola, Florida, on December 7, 1913.[1] He was brought up in Chicago, and as musical educators had his mother, who played the piano, and high-school band teachers Nathaniel Clark Smith and Walter Dyett.[2]

Later life and career[edit]

In the early 1940s he played with Milt Larkin's band,[3] as well as with the Duke Ellington[4] and Jimmie Lunceford[5] orchestras.[6]

In 1952, Marshall played with a New York-based quintet led by Ben Webster, with Harold Baker, Cyril Hines, and Bill Pemberton.[7] In 1960 he appeared on Al Sears' Swing's the Thing, with Don Abney, Wally Richardson and Wendell Marshall.[8] Marshall continued to record until at least 1989.[2] He died in Teaneck, New Jersey, on June 1, 1992.[1]

Marshall is cited by Bernard Purdie as one of his influences.[9]
