Marc Cary: Indigenous People Captured Live in Brazil

Fluent in everything from Hancockian fusion to hard bop, keyboardist Marc Cary is the embodiment of the “everything is everything” credo. His group’s debut disc, Indigenous People Captured Live in Brazil (Jazzateria, JZZD 20301-2, 41:48) is a non-stop groove exploration. Cary and his cohorts (bassist Taurus Mateen,percussionist/flutist Yarborough Charles Laws, percussionist Daniel Moreno, and drummer Johan Rucker) slide through a series of lushly percolating jazz-funk (“Rain Dance”), drawing on spheres as diverse as Weather Report and Donald Byrd. But he shows his D.C. roots the most on the Go-Go influenced “Indigenous People, Pt II,” which shows the enduring charm of the Chocolate City’s unstoppable beat.
