Album Notes
Lenny Marcus hails from Wash, DC, but he worked for many years in New Orleans, studying and performing with legends such as Ray Bryant, Ellis Marsalis, Alvin Batiste, and recording with David "Fathead" Newman, Charlie Byrd, Frank Foster, Sonny Fortune, Brian Lynch, Jane Powell and others. His band is a well schooled jazz group. "Their jazz is infectious!" Jazz Times magazine.
Lenny has recorded 18 CD's to date, performed in several international jazz festivals and three New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festivals, and has had his music featured on the National Weather Channel (many songs over the last several years), NPR's ALL that Jazz and ALL Songs Considered. Two of his songs were finalists in the ISC international song writer's competition.
Lenny's music goes from modern high energy to a more contemplative, meditative approach. In recent years, he began studying Beethoven from stellar classical concert pianist Rebecca Wallenborn, and he has incorporated many of Beethoven's Masterpieces into his inventive and innovative jazz style.
Marcus is a highly trained jazz pianist. His compositions are refreshing and uplifting, and he has been compared to Vince Guaraldi, Oscar Peterson, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner, Mose Allison, Ray Bryant, and many others. His original melodies and harmonic counterpoints also provide a high potential for film/TV soundtracks.
