Overview

Overview Todd Marcus Quartet w/ Wayne Escoffrey Father’s Day Tribute to John Coltrane & Eric Dolphy

Todd Marcus reprises the dynamism of one of the great clarinet/sax collaborations of all time! Sax virtuoso John Coltrane and clarinet master Eric Dolphys’ 1961 album Live at the Village Vanguardis a classic, important to saxophonists, clarinetists, and jazz fans more than 50 years later. Bass clarinetist and composer Marcus pays homage to this profound musical moment, bringing guest New York saxophonist Wayne Escoffery to join his Baltimore-based quartet. 

Marcus, was named a 2013 rising star in the 61st Annual Critics Poll of the jazz magazine Downbeat and is one of the few musicians worldwide to focus exclusively on use of the bass clarinet in modern jazz. His work includes critically acclaimed music with his nine-piece jazz orchestra and two albums, including Inheritance, named one of the top 10 Jazz albums of 2012 by NPR.

Originally from England, New York tenor saxophonist Escoffery moved to the U.S. in 1983 and became a prize pupil of jazz great Rene McLean before attending the Thelonious Monk Institute, which included touring with Herbie Hancock. Ben Ratliff, noted jazz critic of The New York Times, writes Escoffery is a "young, self-assured, hard-swinging tenor saxophonist" while Jazziz Magazinecalls him "one of modern jazz's foremost saxophonists."

While Marcus’ work over recent years has prominently featured Middle Eastern influences from his Egyptian background, this performance references early influences of jazz greats Coltrane and Dolphy and their seminal collaboration recorded in Greenwich Village five decades ago. A wonderful event to bring your Dad to! 5pm & 7pm | $35 show w/ dinner, $25 show only.
