Jazz clarinetist Todd Marcus on his band's new CD, "In the Valley"
Now, Tom welcomes back to the show one of the best jazz musicians in the business. Todd Marcus is a virtuoso bass clarinetist, composer and arranger. His latest album was released last Friday. It’s called In the Valley, and it features music he composed for his nine-piece big band, inspired by Todd’s visits to Egypt, to perform and to visit family.
Todd Marcus joins us on Zoom from his home in Sandtown-Winchester…
Todd and the band will be performing in Baltimore a week from tonight - July 14th - on the Art in the Parks series in Bolton Hill. And the next night, on July 15, the band is playing in the sculpture garden of the National Gallery of Art.
