Welcome!  I just added a new page with videos!  These are some demos of songs with Ninth Mode, our jazz trio.  "Big Noise from Winnetka", "Autumn Leaves" and Benny Goodman's "A Smooth One" are the videos we did.  I get to play with my friends Dave Davidson on keyboards and Mark Davis on Bass.  These guys are great musicians and whole lot of fun!  Let me know what you think; send a note to me at the email on the Contacts page.

     You'll notice that I'm playing clarinet on these tunes.  I'm really enjoying getting back into clarinet; it is a whole different animal than sax, especially bari sax, is.  (I think Benny Goodman said something about lazy musicians play the sax; you have to be really good to play clarinet!)  We're playing our first gig together in a while at a private party in a few weeks-it will be good to get back to it.

     By the way, I recently had my 1956 Buffet R-13 clarinet overhauled by Wesley Rice, the owner of Rice Clarinet Works, www.ClarinetWorks.com.  He did a great job.  He kept me informed about everything, and did all the work on time and for the agreed prices.  You often hear about folks not doing the job right or not handling the business side of things properly, but Wes did both.  I'm very happy with my "new" 1956 clarinet; now I've just got to practice enough to keep up with the horn!

     You'll see a variety of tunes from various albums and tracks on the "Marc's Music" page, so check that out as well.  You can also buy music if you go to the "Buy Here" page, so please do so!
