Influential pianist Marc Cary served as NEA Jazz Master Abbey Lincoln s accompanist for 12 years. His beautiful solo piano debut is the first instrumental tribute to Lincoln s one-of-a-kind compositional genius!
In a field of increasing vocalist interpretations of the songs of Abbey Lincoln, Marc Cary s wholly instrumental solo piano treatment of these timeless pieces marks an important first in the history of jazz. Has SoundScanned over 10,000 albums across his career. Cary has received strong endorsement from Jean- Philippe Allard, producer of all of Abbey Lincoln s classic Verve recordings, which will give this tribute a very special standing among her many fans. Named one of DownBeat s 25 for the Future of Jazz. Has recorded and toured with such diverse artists as Shirley Horn, Erykah Badu, D Angelo, Q-Tip, Ani DiFranco , Arthur Taylor, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Wynton Marsalis, and Roy Hargrove. This is shaping up to be the year of Marc Cary at Motéma! In addition to this tribute, he will release a new Focus Trio studio album (October 2013), and his wicked keyboard skills will be heard on exceptional new Motéma releases by Will Calhoun (May 2013), David Murray (June 2013), and Charnett Moffett (July 2013).
