Todd Marcus Quintet

November 5 @ 7:00 pm

Bass clarinetist/composer Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to focus their work primarily on the bass clarinet.

Though use of bass clarinet in jazz typically leans heavily towards avant-garde and free-jazz styles, Marcus’ straight-ahead playing has carved out a unique voice for the instrument in modern jazz. His music swings hard with both a fiery and introspective intensity but also maintains a strong lyrical sensibility.

Joining Marcus on stage are 4 outstanding jazz musicians in their own right. Here’s the all-star lineup:

Todd Marcus – bass clarinet & clarinet
Warren Wolf – vibraphone
Tim Brey – piano
Zack Pride – bass
Eric Kennedy – drums

“In Marcus’ hands, the bass clarinet is no longer a specialty instrument. Its unique timbral richness becomes incisive, fully capable of forceful expression.” JazzTimes magazine
