MARCUS STRICKLAND, Tenor Saxophone A Miami native, Marcus Strickland graduated from the New World High School of the Arts in Miami in 1997. As a student of performance and composition, Mark relocated to New York City and continued his studies at New School University's Jazz and Comtemporary Music Program, where he developed his signature sound. As both tenor and soprano saxophone player, Marcus has appeared in an impressive number of groups that include The Wynton Marsalis Quintet, Reggie Workman's African American Legacy Band, The Mingus Big Band, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, The Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, The Milt Jackson Big Band as well as the groups of drummer, Winard Harper and bassist, Lonnie Plaxico. Still in his early twenties, Marcus is a significant contributor to the fertile New York City jazz scene.

With a gorgeous tone and unabashed command of both his instrument and linear expression, Marcus demands the listener¹s attention. He attributes his rapid musical development to his tutelage under legendary drummer Roy Haynes and bassist extraordinaire, Lonnie Plaxico. Marcus is also an active composer and leader of his own group, The Marcus Strickland Quartet who can be heard on his most recent recording, Brotherhood. Currently, Marcus plays in both the groups of the drummers Roy Haynes and Jeff ³Tain² Watts and trumpeters, Dave Douglas and Tom Harrell and the big band of the legendary McCoy Tyner.
