Pianist, composer and bandleader Marc Cary emerged from the Washington D.C. go-go scene but cut his teeth with Dizzy Gillespie, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Arthur Taylor and other jazz veterans. He’s since established his own identity as a leader mixing straightahead sounds with East Indian, West African and hip-hop flavors. Cary sat for this B&A session following his set at the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival last winter. His latest recording is Focus Trio Live 2009 (Motéma).
