Marcus Penrose Marcus Penrose

As a jazz double bassist Marcus has played in countless different line-ups and in venues of all sizes and varieties in London, the UK and Europe, from the world-famous Vortex Jazz Club to Glastonbury Festival. Between 2004 and 2009 he was resident bassist at Notting Hill Brasserie and The Ebury in Belgravia where he performed regularly with, among others, Ivo Neame, Asaf Sirkis, Dylan Howe, Kit Downes, Jeff Williams, Shane Forbes, Bill Bruford and John Escreet. In 2010 he appeared on pianist Will Butterworth’s trio album ‘Hearafter’ with Peter Ibbetson on drums. Following on from this he worked with Will and saxophonist Seb Pipe in the collaborative trio ‘Tournesol’. The trio produced and released a self-titled album and toured the UK in 2012 to positive reviews. Between 2011 and 2014 Marcus was a founder and active member of The SE Collective, a group of South London based musicians, promoting regular successful jazz nights showcasing some of of the UK’s most cutting edge jazz and improvised music groups. They also formed various bands including MAP Trio (Marcus, Alam Nathoo on saxophone and Peter Ibbetson on drums) and released an album in 2012. Marcus is currently concentrating on promoting and composing for his trio, Aurelius, featuring Will Butterworth on piano and Marco Quarantotto on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
