“One of Jazz, Bass, and Music world’s treasures! There is a great bass tone, great swing, and lovely fire in everything that Marlene does.” — John Clayton, bassist, composer
The band this weekend in Ms. Rosenberg’s own words will be presenting an idea of Mingus-Mitchell-Mowtown playing the music of Charlie Mingus, Joni Mitchell and some Motown songs with some originals mixed in as well.
