Mitch Marcus, tenor sax, piano; Leon Boykins, bass; Brian Fishler, drums
Saxophonist/Pianist/Composer Mitch Marcus will be performing compositions new and old with this stellar trio.
The Invaders Trio brings together a number of diverse elements to create a sound unique to the standard piano trio. They play through-composed melodies intertwined with free improvisation, all the while swinging, mixed-meter grooves with intensity and a lively, dynamic interplay. Inspired by the likes of Ahmad Jamal, and Medeski, Martin, Wood, in the same breadth. With Mitch Marcus also on tenor saxophone (in addition to piano) the band twists and turns through a wide array of sounds. They have a brand new release about to come out within the next few months.
"Although its music is grounded in blues, bop and other time-honored constructs, the MM Invaders Trio is not your usual jazz band. In fact, their adventurous tunes, use of unusual meters and delightfully manic arrangements travel far beyond conventional musical borders."--“All About Jazz”
