Marcus Strickland with the Curtis Brothers

Marcus Strickland

You don’t want to miss this show in Philly on Friday the 15th. This combination of musicians doesn’t come around very often. The Curtis Brothers Band has been performing, recording and practicing together for six years. They’ve grown to know each other so well musically that the music flows seamless and naturally. To see Marcus add fuel to their flame will be an experience! Hope to see you all there!

Marcus Strickland, who was named ‘Rising Star, Soprano Saxophone’ in Downbeat Magazine’s Critic’s Poll ’08 and ‘Best New Artist’ in JazzTimes Magazine’s Reader’s Poll ’06; has two releases on Fresh Sound New Talent Records as a leader (“At Last” and “Brotherhood”); and currently plays with Dave Douglas, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, and Will Calhoun. Strickland also recently ended a five-year stint with legendary drummer Roy Haynes.

The aspiring saxophonist has been on two Grammy-nominated recordings (“Fountain of Youth” – Roy Haynes & “Keystone” – Dave Douglas). His own record label, Strick Muzik, was launched in 2006 with an adventurous double CD project featuring two bands of his, and appropriately titled with a play on words “Twi-Life”.

In 2007, the highly acclaimed Twi-Life Group released a live album entitled “Open Reel Deck” off Strick Muzik. The album features Lage Lund on guitar, Carlos Henderson on electric bass and E.J. Strickland on drums as well as trumpeter Keyon Harrold, the hip-hop-tinged poetry of Malachi, and one track with pianist Jon Cowherd. Throughout the electrically charged atmosphere of “Open Reel Deck” the Twi-Life Group displays the curious side of Marcus’ compositional skills through funk, hip-hop, afro-beat, rock, ska and jungle grooves, while also showcasing the versatility of his twin brother E.J. on the drums.
