Marbin - New CD Out

Dear MoonJune Friends, I am pleased and happy to announce the new studio album of one of the label's best selling artist, four young and extremely talented Chicago based youngsters with incredible and admirable work ethic, and very focused and determined artistic agenda. I do not have nothing but personal admirations for Marbin. Yours In Music
Leonardo Pavkovic. Last Chapter Of Dreaming is out now! Marbin (Danny Markovitch- saxophones Dani Rabin- guitar, Justin Lawrence - drums Jae Gentle - bass with special guests, among others: Paul Wertico, Steve Rodby, Jamey Haddad) is one of the hardest-working, most promising new bands in all of progressive music.

Performed over 450 shows in the last 2-and-a-half years as very few or no other young bands of any genre.
They've toured the country with guitar legends Allan Holdsworth and Scott Henderson, and consistently wowed audiences everywhere with conviction and urgency.
Marbin's music covers a gamut of styles in which they are very fluid: rock, jazz, fusion, blues, progressive, world music and much more.
Their talents have attracted the likes of multiple Grammy award-winning musicians Paul Wertico (former Pat Metheny Group drummer) and Steve Rodby (current Pat Metheny Group bassist and band director), among others.
Marbin's music has received glowing press reviews from progressive music critics around the globe and attracts a diverse listening audience from all four corners. It has also been highly-praised by the four aforementioned legendary musicians, and countless others!

Being every bit as enthralling as it is entertaining, Marbin's third release is a genre-defying masterpiece. This album will rock your socks off. It can make you weep, or it can whisk you away on a cloud. Last Chapter Of Dreaming has it all and does it all, with conviction all the while displaying dazzling group chemistry, with some stunning interplay, sensitive deliveries, and a remarkably innovative flair.

Marbin's Breaking The Cycle their sophmore effort, and their first for MoonJune Records - is a poised and powerful new release that is already garnering high praise from critics around the globe.The duo of Dani Rabin (guitars) and Danny Markovitch (saxes) display a chemistry, depth and maturity which truly belies their young ages (both are in their early twenties). Breaking The Cycle is powered by the renowned rhythmic thrust of Pat Metheny Group veterans Paul Wertico (on drums) and Steve Rodby (on bass). A great mix of fusion, prog, jazz, folk and ambient music, the band's lithe interplay is sensitive and organic - creating moments of surreal beauty. Rabin and Markovitch interact on an almost subconscious level producing music subtle, intuitive and flowing. Despite the range of musical styles on display here, there is a natural flow that yields an animate, breathing quality to every song. This is polished world music that trandscends borders. For fans of Pat Metheny, Terje Rypdal, Jan Garbarek, Oregon, and the "ECM sound."
