Marcus Gilmore

Marcus Gilmore was inspired to pick up percussion by the music of his grandfather, legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes, who gave him his first set of drums at the age of 10. He took naturally to jazz as well as classical theory and percussion. Already one of New York's most in-demand young drummers at age 22, he has performed around the world with some of today's best known jazz artists, including Chick Corea, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Natalie Cole, Clark Terry, Nicholas Payton, Christian Scott, John Patitucci, Wynton Marsalis and the J@lc Orchestra, Cassandra Wilson, Terence Blanchard, Steve Coleman, Ravi Coltrane, Dave Douglas, Vijay Iyer, Roy Hargrove and many others.
