Lute FP Well, I’ve been convinced for the last few decades that I wanted nothing to do with jazz fusion, but along came this. Maybe I was just in the mood, or maybe this sounds like nothing that has come before. I dunno, but this is some off the hook shit. Totally dug the first spin and bought it so I can keep coming back to it.

Bomage Holy #@¢%!!! I'm not sure how I stumbled on this band but I just got the CD in the mail and I am blown away! Excellent! Fantastic! Absolutely essential music! A perfect blend of styles, often stretching from one to another within the space of a single musical phrase; stunning musicianship and songwriting skills here!

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    In 2019, Marbin is already a well-known secret to music lovers who are not satisfied with the mainstream lull. With tens of thousands of albums sold, over two hundred shows a year in hundreds of towns all over the US, and a cult-like following for their daily live feed, Marbin is back with their eighth album, Strong Thing, and they're taking no prisoners. All ten tracks on the album are packed with a unique blend of jazz, rock, jam, prog, tango, and more; it is as hard hitting and technical as it is sophisticated and musical. The interaction between the rhythm section, comprised of Marbin's veteran player Jon Nadel on bass and debut drummer Everette Benton Jr., is superb.


    Dani Rabin explains: “Unlike other bands that record an album and then tour to promote it, we approach our albums more like comedians creating their specials. We tour with a set of new material for a year and when it comes time to record it, we just go to the studio and bang it out the same way we do in our live shows.” Markovitch expands on the subject: "I think it makes our shows more fun as well. Our fans know that every time they come to see us they'll see a completely different set with new tunes and story time.” Rabin extrapolates: “Story time is when I tell the stories behind the titles of our songs. Each one of our songs is named after a crazy road story. It became a fan favorite and an integral part of our live shows.”
