Although his more than 25 years as a sideman include playing everything from punk to cabaret, It Doesn't End Here is comprised of Marc's first love, namely mainstream jazz with bop, Brazilian, and New Orleans influences. The album highlights both his robust alto playing and talents as a composer, with eight original compositions and three inventively re-imagined standards. Regardless of style or source, however, the music is distinguished by an approachability that doesn't sacrifice depth.
Backing Marc is a great band featuring Jim Ridl (piano), Steve Cardenas (guitar), Karl Spicer (bass), and Gene Lewin (drums).
