Mark Sherman was a winner in the Downbeat Magazine’s Critics and readers poll from 2007-2017.
Mark brings a deeply rooted post-bop approach to a program of originals and standards, which convincingly carry on the art form with a potent level of invigorating musicianship. His music is relentlessly energetic, hard-charging, and brimming with incredible improvisations from his deeply rooted skillset. In addition, Sherman has recorded 17 CDs as a leader, and over 150 CDs as a sideman. In 2011, he was given the honor of representing the United States on the US State Department /Jazz Ambassadors tour abroad with over 30 concerts and workshops in Russia, and Southeast Asia. He continues to carry on the Jazz tradition through playing and education as an 11-year Juilliard Jazz professor of Vibraphone.
