Marvin Sewell is a highly professional, talented and accomplished musician, composer, and producer who has a truly dynamic and distinct sound that encompasses a “fantasy fusion” of jazz, blues, funk, alternative and world music. In 1990 Marvin moved to New York City where he began playing with bands of various music styles, ranging from acoustic to electric; and a few years later he became affiliated with Jack Dejohnette’s Special Edition. In 1995 Marvin began a long-time creative collaboration with multiple GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Cassandra Wilson. In addition to leading the Marvin Sewell group, he is a member of the Jason Moran Bandwagon and travels the globe touring with a host of amazing performing artists. Sewell’s concept about being a world-class musical talent is to be everywhere at the same time. “It’s all about the music, the connection and the moment … no labels, no boundaries – just thinking outside the box and letting it flow.”
