The Music is the Ritual by Anil Prasad
Marilyn Mazur taps into a deep sense of collective consciousness in her work. For five decades, the Danish drummer, percussionist, and composer has constantly pushed the boundaries of the jazz and new music worlds. She's firmly established as a critical part of the jazz pantheon across her work with Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Jan Garbarek, and Wayne Shorter.

Marilyn Mazur interviewed by Pablo Held
Percussionist & composer Marilyn Mazur is like a magician. Through her imaginative playing and her rich palette of sounds she casts spells on the music, her bandmates and us as listeners. When I listen to her I feel transported into places that I didn’t know existed and that’s something I’m fascinated by. How does one do that? I’m so happy I got to talk to her about her process, leading a band, composing, finding her way in the bands of Miles Davis & Wayne Shorter, my late teacher John Taylor, Norma Winstone and much more.

Marilyn played a full concert of her own compositions with the DR Big Band, for the first time in 2018, and a major part of the concert in DR Studio 2 was presented on DR TV and online in 2020.

Time for writing and meditating on new music and projects
Almost all concerts this spring and summer are cancelled, which gives much time for writing and meditating on new music and projects, and also for enjoying life and nature in the close surroundings.
Most of the cancelled concerts will actually happen in 2021 instead. So 2021 will be full of music and activity!
