Michael Marcus: Lotus Symphony

Read "Lotus Symphony" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dagli inizi al sax baritono in gruppi di rhythm n' blues all'esperienza con Jaky Byard, di tempo ne è passato, ma Michael Marcus continua ancora a sorprederci. Cambia strumento (in questo disco si dedica solo al clarinetto), ma la sua statura artistica resta invariata, con un ampia possibilità espressiva che prende a prestito da tutta la ...

Michael Marcus: Lotus Symphony

Read "Lotus Symphony" reviewed by John Sharpe

Improvisers who concentrate on the clarinet are a select bunch, perhaps something to do with the difficulty of navigating its tricky three registers--a far cry from the early days of jazz when the clarinet's cry was integral to Dixieland and swing ensembles. Multi-instrumentalist Michael Marcus has only lately joined that coterie lost in the licorice stick's ...

Michael Marcus: Lotus Symphony

Read "Lotus Symphony" reviewed by Troy Collins

A criminally under-sung multi-instrumentalist, Michael Marcus' collaborations with Ted Daniel, Frank Lowe, and Sonny Simmons over the past two decades have yielded some of the most enduring and adventurous sounds in modern jazz. A soulful stylist on soprano, alto, and baritone saxophone, Marcus is also an advocate of the more esoteric members of the saxophone family, ...


Michael Marcus: Lotus Symphony

Read "Lotus Symphony" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Michael Marcus is a multi-instrumentalist who has shown mettle on the manzello, the stritch, the saxello, as well as the alto, baritone and soprano saxophones and the clarinet. He has recently been gravitating towards the clarinet and has played solely on the Bb clarinet on Golden Atoms (Soul Note, 2008) and here on Lotus Symphony.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
