Denmark-based Marilyn Mazur, born in New York, is a composer, bandleader and percussionist. She was active in the 1970’s as a dancer, composer and pianist and switched to percussion and drums at 19. Since then Marilyn has been active as a member of the orchestras of i.e. Miles Davis (from 1985-89), Wayne Shorter (1987) and Jan Garbarek (1991-2005). Marilyn creates and performs continuously in numerous exiting projects, specialising in large set-ups with instruments from most of the world. She leads her own bands and special projects, often based in Denmark. Besides these projects, she composes music for film, theatre, and more. In more recent years her music has been heard in Marilyn Mazur Group, Makiko Hirabayashi Trio, Celestial Circle and Zoom Trio. In 2008 Marilyn was Artist in Residence at the Molde International Jazzfestival, creating six different concert projects/constellations with her own music. Marilyn has recorded numerous CD with among others Palle Mikkelborg, Miles Davis and Jan Garbarek. She has received many Danish and international awards during her carreer, i.e. the Jazzpar Prize in 2001, Wilhelm Hansens Composers Award and, in 2010, the First International Eurocore Prize – JTI Jazz Award.

LARS MØLLER: ReWrite of Spring
"At værket netop omsættes til jazz, er helt i Stravinskijs ånd. Lars Møllers arrangementer er præget af en kontrolleret voldsomhed og en formidabel spilleglæde, som sættes i relief af den blændende amerikanske sopransaxofonist David Liebman."
