Seattle Times: Mark Sherman Brings His Vibraphone (and Quartet) to Tula's

SOURCE: Published: 2009-01-31
Mark Sherman from The Seattle Times:

Vibraphone players are something of a rare breed in jazz music, sometimes a happy accident, Mark Sherman being one of them.

Serendipity is known to take its time, so perhaps it is no surprise that Sherman, 51, was well into middle age before he really hit his stride. Named the “Rising Star” among vibraphonists for the past two years in the Downbeat magazine critics poll, Sherman is quickly catching attention for his muscular and deeply melodic style.

Sherman’s quartet — he is playing with a local rhythm section — plays tonight and Saturday at Tula’s jazz club in Belltown. Joining Sherman is pianist John Hansen, bassist Paul Gabrielson and drummer Jose [Martinez]. Sherman, a member of the music faculty at New Jersey City University, will also teach an open clinic Saturday afternoon at Tula’s from 3 to 5 p.m. with drummer Greg Williamson and singer Karen Shivers.
