“Mr. Marcus is probably the most inventive bass clarinetist working in straight-ahead jazz today… [and] lives in Baltimore, where he is a guiding light on the city’s jazz scene who doubles as an activist and organizer.”

His music swings hard with both a fiery and introspective intensity but also maintains a strong lyrical sensibility.
