About Marc Cary and Focus Trio Live 2009

“If you're going to learn jazz, you should have something to bring. Cats don't think about bringing much, they just want to see what they can get from the music. It's a two way street." - Marc Cary

Hailed by Down Beat as one of the most, “multi-dimensional keyboard players on the scene today," whose music reveals those multi-dimensions in sensual living color, Marc Cary's continual search for his musical identity has brought him to all corners of the earth, quenching his thirst to bring forth indigenous musics in all of their forms.

His latest offering on this journey embarked on April 13th, when Motma Music released its third Cary project, Focus Trio Live 2009, the follow up to his earlier live release, Focus Live 2008, which is available only digitally.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
