This week on No Simple Road we are super excited to have Marcus Rezak as our guest! Known as a master of jazz improvisation and a seasoned artist of the sit-in, Rezak is a frequent call among bands and musicians. Rezak’s 2018 debut as a bandleader saw him collaborating alongside Kris Myers and Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee, Arthur Barrow of Frank Zappa’s band, and legendary saxophonist Bill Evans. Since then he has toured across the US with eclectic lineups featuring the likes of Ike Willis, Kris Myers, Jay Lane, Scott Page, and more; led his band through two tours on the US Virgin Islands; spearheaded official Umphrey’s McGee afterparties, and continued to hone his chops in his home studio and licensing endeavors.
‘Truth in Sound’ is Rezak’s most recent work featuring members of Trey Anastasio Band, esteemed percussionist Kaylan Pathak, and more. His adaptability and exceptional skill have garnered Rezak much respect in the music world and have leveraged his ability to take his craft to integral heights.
Marcus sits down to talk with us about creating the new album ‘Truth In Sound’,playing with Russ Lawton, Ray Paczkowski, and Tony Markellis and the impact that Ton;y’s passing had on how he sees the new music they created, the spiritual side of making music, what his ‘turn-on’ moment was like, and a whole lot more!
