Shreddin' at Sweetwater

In their second live album, and their eleventh album overall, Marbin delivers ten heavy and energetic songs from their extensive catalog. This album has everything that made Marbin one of the most well-known independent bands of the last decade: a unique mixture of jazz, blues, jam, tango and Israeli music; beautiful melodies; unique harmonic progressions; a hard-hitting rhythm section (with bassist Jon Nadel and drummer Everette Benton Jr. giving their best performance on record). And, above all, SHREDDING. Marbin, who usually play 250 shows a year, were on their way to Columbia, SC to play their 27th show of 2020 when Covid-19 hit and all 40 live shows of the tour were canceled; eventually, every show of the year was canceled (more than a hundred shows). As of January 2021, they still have not booked any new shows for the year. This album might not satisfy the needs of their fans for live shows, but it’s the closest it can get.

This is what Marbin’s guitarist Dani Rabin had to say about the album: "Since Danny Markovitch and I met in 2007, we never went such a long time without playing shows. So when the opportunity to record a live set for Sweetwater Studios came about, we were ecstatic. It might have been eight months since we saw each other, but the second we started playing the magic was there and it felt like everything was normal in the world again.” Saxophonist Danny Markovitch adds: “We always play new songs at our shows, so to have an opportunity to go back and revisit some songs we haven’t played in years was an awesome experience, and I’m certain that our fans will love hearing the new perspective we brought to some of their old favorites.”
