“The notes come to your ears as if they were from the hand of God. If there is music in Heaven, this has to be what it sounds like.” 5/5 stars

Buzz Magzine - Roger Reis

“The interaction between guitarist Dani Rabin, and saxophonist Danny Markovitch is magical. Marbin is pulling the most sensitive melodies from the deepest parts of their soul, and it’s up to the listener to allow the music to reach the same areas within.” 5/5 Stars

69 Faces of Rock - Mark Kadzielawa

“Marbin’s “Breaking The Cycle” is a marvel of musicianship and imagination. Every original, thoughtful song on this CD is worthy of its own album, concert, and Grammy.” 5/5 Stars

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
