Marty Morell

Marty Morell (drums, percussion, vibes, piano, producer) was a member of the Bill Evans Trio for seven years. A highly inventive player, capable of both great subtlety and fiery dynamics.

Morell attended the Manhattan School of Music and studied mallets with Morris Goldberg, and tympani with Saul Goodman at the Julliard School of Music. Prior to joining Bill Evans, Morell worked and/or recorded with the Al Cohn-Zoot Sims Quintet, Henry “Red” Allen , Gary McFarland, Steve Kuhn and Gabor Szabo.

He recorded prolifically and toured the world with pianist Bill Evans and bassist Eddie Gomez from late 1968 through 1974. After leaving the trio, Marty settled in Toronto, Canada where he became a highly sought after studio drummer and percussionist. He fronted his own bands as a drummer and also worked as a vibist and pianist with his Latin band.
