Todd Marcus - bass clarinet Paul Bollenback - guitar Bruce Barth - piano Ameen Saleem - bass Eric Kennedy – drums Though use of bass clarinet in jazz typically leans heavily towards avant-garde and free-jazz styles, Marcus’ straight-ahead playing has carved out a unique voice for the instrument in modern jazz. His music swings hard with both a fiery and introspective intensity but also maintains a strong lyrical sensibility.
