Bass clarinetist and composer Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to use the bass clarinet as a main instrument and has cultivated a unique place in modern jazz. Marcus' ensembles range from two to nine musicians and include the Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra, Quartet, Trio, and Duo. Self-taught in jazz theory and composition, Marcus' compositions draw largely on straight-ahead jazz and classical influences but over recent years have also increasingly explored the Middle-Eastern sounds from his Egyptian-American heritage.
