Marc Cary has gained a reputation as one of the most creative pianists of our time: a bandleader with musical interests that encompass jazz, go-go, hip-hop, electronic music, Indian classical music, and more. But Cary is also an incisive and sought-after accompanist, a fact famously borne out by his 12-year tenure with the great vocalist, songwriter and jazz icon Abbey Lincoln. Cary was raised in Washington, DC. He attended the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and upon relocating to New York in 1988, began his rise as an eclectic jazz piano modernist. In addition to Abbey Lincoln, he has worked with such masters as Betty Carter, Arthur Taylor, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach and Shirley Horn. He has earned Grammy nominations for his work with Lincoln, Carter, Roy Hargrove and Stefon Harris's Blackout. His talent has elevated the music of everyone from Russell Gunn and Marcus Printup to Q-Tip (Cary's production work for Q-Tip's 2009 album, The Renaissance, helped earn the disc a GRAMMY® nomination).
