Marc Black "Stroke Of Genius"
It is rare that musicians of this stature come together on a single record. What inspired Steve Gadd, Warren Bernhardt, Art Garfunkel, The Dixie Hummingbirds, Mike Esposito and John Sebastian and Apollo Sunshine. to combine their immeasurable talents? An extraordinary project about an extraordinary journey.
It all comes together on Stroke of Genius, the musical brain child of singer/songwriter Marc Black. Marc travels through the mind of a man who has seen the "other side" and has come back...with more gratitude and appreciation for life than he had ever dreamed possible.
Stroke Of Genius reveals Marc as a guitar player with a minimal, but powerful style. His trancing, groove oriented, story telling is unique and seemingly effortless. And his arrangements and vocals bring the music to life.
It's a fine, deep piece of work and a departure for this venerable Woodstock singer/songwriter. Wildly original. BRIAN HOLLANDER, music critic, Woodstock Times
One song, Rewired, is a techno/Frank Zappa style translation of the experiences of someone who has just returned from space. Marc Black is a musical adventurer, stretching effortlessly between techno-funk jams and classic Americana JAY SPICCA Chronogram
