About the Album

On "My Other Voice" Sherman, who is known to most as a world-class vibraphonist, returns to his piano roots. Joining him is an all-star band with Vincent Herring on alto saxophone, Ray Drummond on bass, Carl Allen on drums, Nana Sakamoto on trombone, and Dan Chmielnski on bass.

“I’ve been playing piano since my mom encouraged me to take lessons at age 8...I teach at the piano, I write at the piano and I simply love to play the piano. With 10 fingers and an 8 octave range available, it gives me a different level and dimension of expression."

A vibraphonist, composer and producer and a DownBeat Rising Star, Mark Sherman has performed/recorded with a range of musicians including Peggy Lee, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Lena Horne, Ruth Brown, Joe Beck, Rodney Jones, Ruth Brown, Ann Hampton Callaway, Liza Minelli and many others. He played with Larry Coryell for seven years and has been on faculty at the Juilliard School since 2010.
