Born:

Marx's interest in jazz began in Detroit while he was a young man. From his earliest recollection, jazz was his music of choice. Seeking to learn more, in the '70's Marx made it to Berkeley to study with Hal Stein on the West Coast. In Oakland and San Francisco the Jazz scene was hot and Marx played with greats like Eddie Henderson and Mark Levine. Once jazz was in his blood, Marx went to New York for 14 years where he played with Reggie Workman, Steve Slagle, Guitarist Kevin McNeil, Donald Byrd, Ed Schuler, Jim Pepper, Gene Jackson, Ira Coleman, Santi DeBriano and Dave Stryker among others

Jeff Marx's Tenor and Jeff "Siege" Siegel's Drums in Duo "Dreamstuff"

Jeff Marx plays a solid Post-Trane tenor in ways not entirely typical of some of the players out there. There is the passionate sound but there are lines he comes up with that aren't stock-in-trade contemporary tenorizing. “Siege" Siegel is a drummer that you can hear swinging along on a lot of sessions.

Jeff Marx: Treading Air, Breathing Fire

Read "Treading Air, Breathing Fire" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


The sixteen minute live piece “Scare 'Em Stupid" could almost be worth the price of Jeff Marx's new recording alone.
