Marc Cary
Focus (Motema, 2006)

Raised in Washington, D.C., Marc Cary has become known as one of the most original jazz pianists in New York. A man of eclectic tastes, Cary has a strong post-bop foundation but has also explored Afro-Cuban rhythms, electronic groove music, and other directions with his various ensembles. Upon arriving in New York, Cary was taken under the wing of Mickey Bass and Beaver Harris. His first big-time gigs came in the early '90s with Arthur Taylor, Betty Carter, and Roy Hargrove. In 1994, he became Abbey Lincoln's pianist and arranger.

Cary's own records have shown great promise, beginning with 1994's Cary On. Two releases for Arabesque followed, Listen in 1996 and The Antidote in 1998. An uncharacteristic electronica project titled Rhodes Ahead, Vol. 1 appeared in 1999, as did a live album by Cary's world music group Indigenous People (both on the Jazzateria label). Cary's acoustic trio released Trillium in early 2000. - By David R. Adler, All Music Group.

The Indigenous People's new CD Captured Live In Brazil (Jazzateria #20301-2) is the follow-up to two acclaimed Marc Cary CDs, Listen (Arabesque, 1997) and The Antidote (Arabesque, 1998) and is further proof of his unique jazz vision. His Indigenous People group mines the rich history of African diasporic music, from African folk melodies, Brazilian and Caribbean grooves to American jazz, funk and go-go rhythms. Cary states: "Our intention on this CD was to capture the spirit of our people and perpetuate their energy through our music." At times recalling flashes of electric Herbie Hancock, Weather Report and 60's and 70's excursions by musical trend-setters like Donald Byrd and Cannonball Adderly, Captured Live In Brazil is an expansive exploration of groove by the young keyboardist and bandleader, who shines on acoustic piano, Fender Rhodes and Moog. From the pensive, wide-open opener "Rain Dance" to the percussion-heavy "Indigenous People Pt. II", Cary's new group is with him every step of the way, surrounding him as a living, breathing musical organism.

Thirty-two year old Washington, DC-bred MARC CARY is one of the most inventive and unique keyboardists on the scene today. As a solo artist as well as through sideman work with Abbey Lincoln, Arthur Taylor and Betty Carter, Cary has consistently impressed critics and jazz listeners alike. Peter Watrous of the New York Times noted in 1995: "As a pianist, Mr. Cary is growing... he is onto something important." Tom Terrel of JazzTimes stated of Listen: "...this is one powerful harbinger of a jazz life to come." And K. Leander Williams of Time Out New York says: "...Cary's arrangements tend to be hefty and light at the same time, brimming with just the right amount of pop momentum and Caribbean percussion to float references to Monk, Mingus and even the relaxed karmic worldbeat of Pharoah Sanders." Captured Live In Brazil is Cary's fourth CD as a leader, and is a huge next step in his artistic maturation — both as composer and bandleader.

Jazz Fact Deserving Of Wider Recognition: Washington, D.C. is a veritable motherlode for innovative jazz pianists (think Duke Ellington, John Malachi, Shirley Horn). Today, the spirit of those that came before is alive and well in the halls of Duke Ellington School For The Arts. Proof positive of this postulation is pianist Marc Cary.

Although born in New York City (Jan.29, 1967), Marc experienced his formative years in Chocolate City. His parents are musician/artists (his father is a percussionist, his mother a cellist/painter who also crafts jewelry) who naturally nurtured young Marc's successive forays into cello, trumpet and drums. Indeed, the playing of instruments was an old family tradition. "My great-grandmother, Mae York Smith, used to play piano in theaters accompanying silent movies", recalls Marc. "She used to play duets with Eubie Blake they would switch up left hand / right hand. She lived to be 100 years old. My mother's father is a trumpet player, first cousin to Cootie Williams -- played in his band down South. Duke called him but he decided to stay and raise the family."

Like every young kid with an axe before him, Cary joined the HIgh Integrity Band & Show, one of DC's many Go-Go bands. Finding the drum & trumpet chairs already filled, he began to dabble in synths and Fender Rhodes. Showbiz can be a pretty elixir for a teenager -- he dropped out of high school at 16. As he slid into the Go-Go highlife, young Marc's descent was turned around by two guardian angels. "Eleanor Oxendine in Maryland one of my first rudimentary teachers, taught me how to read and gave me access to her studio," says Cary. "She eventually employed me to teach the kids. At RAP Inc. (DC community activist center) I met Daniel Witt, he hipped me to piano, I developed a real appreciation for it."

Now A young man with a mission , Cary quit the Go-Go and passed his exam to enter Duke Ellington School. Three years later, the now 20 high school grad was feeling New York. Finishing up post-grad studies with local heroes John Malachi and Calvin Jones, our man caught the first Greyhound outta town. "I came to the city at 21 with twenty dollars in my pocket -- now I have 40 bucks to my name," laughs Marc. "I hooked up with Beaver Harris and Mickey Bass." Impressed with their new friend's humble vibe and sneakily meditative piano swing, these two elders schooled and guided Cary through the underground. Soon, Arthur Taylor's Wailers and Betty Carter beckoned. Cary would tour and record with both (MR. AT and DROPPIN' THINGS, respectively). Working with these masters not only strengthened his chops, he found his center. "From AT I learned everything, life, his life, what to do what not to do -- always be prepared and get your money up front. From Betty, I learned 'Tight' -- how to be on top, the etiquette of being a musician."

Cary's education continues today in Abbey Lincoln's band. Of Lincoln, he says, "She's my mentor, one of my favorite persons. She teaches me you got to claim shit -- I've learned allot of music with her and how to personalize it, take it more serious. (Check out Marc's accompaniment skills on Abbey's latest record, WHO USED TO DANCE)." -- JazzTimes, Tom Terrell.
