Marc Wagnon's CD Release "Earth is a Cruel Master" on Buckyball Music


Sign in to view read count
Marc returns to his own musical vision, combining great jazz-rock with thought-provoking themes such as recent scientific discoveries, climate change and the human condition. Marc takes on the lion's share of the instrumentation, returning to his first love: the drum set- and is joined by long-time collaborators Van Manakas and Leo Traversa.

In the early 90's Marc founded the group Tunnels with world renowned bassist Percy Jones, releasing a critically acclaimed CD in 1994, followed by Painted Rock in 1999. He went on to record a total of five albums with Tunnels. The band broke up in 2009. Marc is also featured on Manifest Destiny, a CD with the legendary English band Brand X.

For this new recording, Marc decided to combine his extensive experience in the synth and sample. The album is a musical tour-the-force, as not only does he take on most of the instrumentation, but he recorded and mixed the whole project. This was a labor of love that took a year from start to finish. The result is an amazing series of tunes that will enthrall listeners.

Marc's previous solo release, Conjunction, is a collaboration with the Headhunters rhythm section: drummer Mike Clark and bassist Paul Jackson. The CD features four original compositions from Marc, as well as some by Jed Levy, Neal Kirkwood, and Paul.

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.
