Hannah Marks Quartet

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15 cover

Bassist Hannah Marks leads a quartet comprised of New York City’s finest up-and-coming jazz musicians: Nathan Reising, alto saxophone; Lex Korten, piano; Steven Crammer, drums.

The quartet’s repertoire reflects its risk-taking, improvisatory focus, whether it be a song by Geri Allen, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, or one of Marks’ original compositions. While distinctly edgy and modern, the band is inspired by legendary groups in jazz history, including the Branford Marsalis Quartet, Miles Davis’ Second Quintet, and Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet. Previous appearances of the Hannah Marks Quartet include renowned NYC venues like The 55 Bar, The Jazz Gallery, Bar Lunatico, and Bar Bayeux, as well as the Iowa City Jazz Festival and Center City Jazz Festival.

Hannah Marks is a bassist, composer, and educator living in New York City. Marks’ debut album, Outsider, Outlier, is an explosive rendering of her search for belonging and empowerment. A nod to her love for punk, noise and free improvisation, Outsider, Outlier releases on Out Of Your Head Records on October 20, 2023.

She has performed at festivals like the Detroit Jazz Festival, Hyde Park Jazz Festival, 80-35 Music Festival, Iowa City Jazz Festival and Indy Jazz Festival. In addition to her experimental rock project Outsider, Outlier, Marks also leads a jazz group, Hannah Marks Quartet.

As a side-woman, Marks has been described as having “a fresh, modern, and original approach to playing the bass” by Marcus Printup. Marks has played bass for Geoffrey Keezer, Nasheet Waits, Terri Lyne Carrington, Anna Webber, Miles Okazaki, Ingrid Jensen, Kalia Vandever, Matt Wilson, Ted Nash, Morgan Guerin and Marcus Printup. Marks’ discography includes playing on Geoffrey Keezer’s Grammy award winning composition “Refuge”, Kristen Lee Sergeant’s Falling with saxophonist Ted Nash, and Heartland Trio’s debut album Year One.
