|About You (optional)|
Recognized as an innovator with a unique grasp of harmony and color, Marc is perhaps the foremost proponent of the lyrical school of jazz pianism today.
Marc’s nickname “the Piano Whisperer” was earned by his rich harmonic technique and crystalline sound.
As a sideman he played with John Abercrombie, Gary Peacock, Bob Belden, Joe Lovano, Greg Osby, Tim Hagans, James Moody, Wallace Roney and many others.
His own groups include all-star cast like Joey Baron, Drew Gress, Gary Peacock, Randy Brecker, Dave Liebman & Ralph Alessi.
“Copland continues to be an exemplar of the lyrical school of jazz pianism. His music, often noted for its innovative harmonic language, nevertheless is widely regarded as easily accessible to the listener.
Many reviewers credit this blend to the pianist’s use of dynamics and touch, and his distinctive pedal work. […]
His thirty-five releases make him perhaps the most prolific jazz pianist of the new millennium.” – Wikipedia
