Take Five With Lenny Marcus
Jazz seems to me to always be around, sometimes waning, sometimes really coming to the forefront, but...always there. I think it is just fine.
What are some of the essential requirements to keep jazz alive and growing?
Keep doing new projects, keep composing, working with different musicians, and supporting live music.
What is in the near future?
Thinking about a tribute album, dedicated to my first teacher, my friend, jazz legend Ray Bryant who passed away this past summer.
Therapist for war veterans at a VA Hospital.
If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a:
Writer, short stories and novels, and/or a painter.
