NY-based Saxophonist, Composer, Bandleader & producer Marcus Strickland has gone on to release seven critically-acclaimed albums, as well as appearing on dozens of records as a sideman alongside Roy Haynes, Jeff “Tain” Watts or Tom Harrell. The freshly signed Blue Note artist is already credited on two of the most-anticipated releases for 2016 on the NY label: with the Blue Note supergroup “Our Point of View” & with his own band Twi-Life “Nihil Novi”.

Strickland´s current main project “Twi-Life” is a terrific Blend of his multiple musical influences, whatever it’s jazz, hip hop, R&B or soul music. The Blue Note saxophonist is about to release his first album on Blue Note Records (in collaboration with Revive), supported by an impressive line up of talents. Produced by Meshell Ndegeocello, mixed by the legendary Bob Power (D´Angelo, A Tribe Called Quest, Chaka Kan)and starring forward-thinking artists such as Robert Glasper, Chris Dave, Pino Palladino, Keyon Harrold or Jean Baylor.

Strickland music can also be heard on the recent compilation “Supreme Sonacy”, starring the young & booming NY Jazz scene. Marcus Strickland is also a core member of the Blue Note supergroup “Our Point Of View” with some of the most sought artists of the next Generation (Robert Glasper, Kendrick Scott, Derrick Hodge, Ambrose Akinmusire, Lionel Loueke). A studio album will see the light next year, featuring jazz giants Herbie Hancock & Wayne Shorter.
