About the Album

On "My Other Voice" Sherman, who is known to most as a world-class vibraphonist, returns to his piano roots. Joining him is an all-star band with Vincent Herring on alto saxophone, Ray Drummond on bass, Carl Allen on drums, Nana Sakamoto on trombone, and Dan Chmielnski on bass.

“I’ve been playing piano since my mom encouraged me to take lessons at age 8...I teach at the piano, I write at the piano and I simply love to play the piano. With 10 fingers and an 8 octave range available, it gives me a different level and dimension of expression."

A vibraphonist, composer and producer and a DownBeat Rising Star, Mark Sherman has performed/recorded with a range of musicians including Peggy Lee, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Lena Horne, Ruth Brown, Joe Beck, Rodney Jones, Ruth Brown, Ann Hampton Callaway, Liza Minelli and many others. He played with Larry Coryell for seven years and has been on faculty at the Juilliard School since 2010.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
