WDNA is thrilled to host Baltimore and NYC based pianist, Marc Cary for the relaunch of the Jazz Encounters series. After playing his music on the radio for over a decade, WDNA is honored to host Cary live in the WDNA Jazz Gallery.

In a jazz world brimming with brilliant and adventurous pianists, Marc Cary stands apart by way of pedigree and design as one of New York’s best jazz pianists. He set the groove behind the drums in Washington DC go-go bands and is a graduate of both Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln’s daunting bandstand academies.

As New York Times jazz critic Nate Chinen observed recently, “There isn’t much in the modern-jazz-musician tool kit that Marc Cary hasn’t mastered, but he has a particular subspecialty in the area of groove…with a range of rhythmic strategies, from a deep-house pulse to a swinging churn.”

He remains one of New York’s best jazz pianists, and as a leading improviser, now heads up the jazz improvisation classes at Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School.
