Jazz Lates: Ben MarcNinety One Living Room, E1 6QL, [Venue Details]
It’s a rare talent that can link Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood, Ethio-jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke, Afrofuturists Sun Ra Arkestra and grime legend Dizzee Rascal, but Ben Marc has long blurred musical worlds and criss-crossed boundaries.
On double and bass guitar, he flits between jazz, classical and electronic music; whether playing on Greenwood’s award-winning score for the film The Master or touring with Astatke for over 10 years. He has also worked with the likes of Matthew Herbert, Charles Mingus, China Moses and Soweto Kinch – and even joining Tina Turner once onstage.
But as a producer and multi-instrumentalist at the leading edge of the UK jazz scene, Ben Marc is now stepping into the spotlight with his debut solo album, Glass Effect.
