Todd Marcus, Bass Clarinet

The critics love Todd Marcus and you will, too. Enjoy his selections from the Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra and his smaller ensembles that Mr. Marcus shares on his official website. Full recordings are available for purchase.

"Bass clarinetist and composer Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to focus exclusively on use of the bass clarinet as a primary soloing instrument.

"While use of bass clarinet in jazz typically tends to lean heavily towards avant-garde and free-jazz styles, Marcus’ playing presents the instrument with a modern straight-ahead jazz approach. His music swings hard with both fiery and introspective intensity but also maintains a strong lyrical sensibility."
