MICHAEL MARCUS The 50+ year-old Michael Marcus has been an active member of the New York jazz scene for over 20 years. Since releasing his debut recording, Under The Wire (Enja,1991), he has continued to be part of the cutting edge in American improvised music, touring the festival and club circuits recently both in the US and Europe with his trio of bassist Tarus Mateen and drummers Jay Rosen or Nasheet Waits. Marcus has played and recorded with Albert King, Bobby Blue Bland, Sonny Rhodes, Sonny Simmons (with whom he co-leads the Cosmosamatics group), Jaki Byard, Billy Higgins, Carlos Patato" Valdes, Jymie Merritt, John Stubblefield, Warren Smith, Philip Wilson, and Carlos Ward. He has also been associated with the Makanda Ken McIntyre Ensemble, Grachan Moncur's big band, trumpeter Ted Daniel and his group Energy, Zane Massey and the Liberation Suite, Jemeel Moondoc's JUS GREW Orchestra, Oakland legend Vince Wallace, trombonist Joe Bowie's Defunkt, and Saxemble (with Frank Lowe and James Carter).
A classic session of Marcus' from 1993 was recently issued for the very first time entitled Ithem (Ayler) with bassist William Parker and the late drummer Denis Charles. And his first highly acclaimed unaccompanied recording Speakin Out (Drimala,2002) will be featured at length during his highly anticipated solo portions of this sure to be memorable event.
