Reedman Michael Marcus Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published: 2007-08-14
Philadelphia performance artist “Skip" Homer Jackson recently asked about a number of jazz artists who have been overlooked because they were great stylists who played in the shadows of great players. Booker Ervin's relationship to John Coltrane came immediately to mind, as did Booker Little, who ironically was little (no pun intended) appreciated during the 1960's era of stellar jazz hornmen. Equally there is multi-instrumentalist/band leader and composer Michael Marcus.

AAJ contributor Ludwig van Trikt spoke with Marcus at great length, and the interview is more than just the history of an artist deserving greater recognition; it's a history of a whole area of jazz that, while critically lauded, deserves to be on the radar of more jazz fans.
