Marc Cary Focus Trio - Pori Jazz Festival

Marc Cary - keys; Rashaan Carter - bass; Sameer Gupta - drums and tabla; American pianist Marc Cary has been on fire lately, as is evident on his 2013 album 'Four Directions'. In his trio, Cary plays both piano and the keys, and the group's music embodies elements of go-go, hiphop, plus Indian musical culture. As their excellent pair of live albums released in 2008 and 2009 prove, on stage is where this band is at home. In 2013, Cary also released a solo piano album, 'For the Love of Abbey', dedicated to the late jazz vocal great Abbey Lincoln. (52 min)
