ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Band: ​The Marcus Elliot Quartet consist of young, Detroit based artist that have a strong passion for expression through improvisation and composition. Marcus Elliot(sax), Michael Malis(piano), Ben Rolston(bass), and Stephen Boegehold(drums), have crafted a very strong sound the past 2 years by playing together on a weekly
basis at Detroit's own Cliff Bells every Tuesday night. They have used this weekly gig as a outlet for work shopping compositions and improvisational ideas. They are constantly searching for inspiration from the musicians that came before them in this city by playing compositions of Detroit jazz legends like Marcus Belgrave, Sam Sanders, Lawrence Williams, and Donald Walden. They are all very committed to the music and understand the importance and power of melody and rhythm. The Marcus Elliot Quartet will be releasing their 2nd album "When the City Meets The Sky" this spring.
The Album:​“This Album is my letter of gratitude to the city of Detroit and all of the amazing and nurturing mentors, musicians, family and friends that I have here. The four movement suite entitled “When The City Meets The Sky”, features one of Detroit’s finest trumpet players, Kris Johnson.”
- Marcus Elliot
