Marilyn Mazur is best known today as the flamboyant percussionist at the heart of the Jan Garbarek Group (Twelve Moons, Visible World), speeding around an ever burgeoning array of multi-ethnic metal, wood and clay instruments. Garbarek: "Marilyn is like the wind. An elemental force." Prior employers Gil Evans, Wayne Shorter, and Miles Davis have similarly valued her pervasive, penetrating percussion. Marilyn drew up the blueprint for Future Song - an American-Danish-Nowegian-Yugoslavian musical alliance - while working the stadiums with Miles in 1989 and the group has survived with intact personnel for eight years. Mazur says: "The music is intended to be like a living organism, expanding through specific dramatic sequences into more open structures. It represents a wide dynamic spectrum, explores many emotions."

Marilyn Mazur’s work has always expressed a free-spiritedness beyond idioms and borders. Born in New York, raised in Denmark, she has contributed powerfully to improvisation on both sides of the Atlantic, and her resume has included stints with Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and Gil Evans as well as 14 years on the road with the Jan Garbarek Group. In recent years her own groups have been the primary focus and the adventurous, song-oriented “Celestial Circle” has been active since 2008. The present disc is the group’s first recording. Material intersperses songs and instrumentals penned by Mazur with collectively improvised trios and duos. Singer Josefine Cronhom (who previously worked with Mazur in the Percussion Paradise ensemble) has her ECM debut here and old friends John Taylor and Anders Jormin make welcome returns.

On Flamingo Sky the trio has created powerful, constantly developing music that touches on a multitude of sounds. From tender ballads to dreamy musical canvases, from funky pieces to frenetic acid music, it is always played with ease. Your shoulders will stay in place, and often you will be tempted to just lean back, close your eyes and let the music caress your soul and body. Each track has its own atmosphere and pulse, and Mazur’s special melodic touch. Each tune starts with a melodic line or a few notes.

A magical mystery tour with two heavies of the avant garde and one good old reliable jazz bassist who fits in anywhere. To be more precise: American/Danish percussionist Marilyn Mazur, she of the frizzy hair and intense eyes; French pianist Jean-Michel Pilc, he of the goatee beard and dark, moody gaze; and Denmark's Mads Vinding, he whose eyes and beard (or lack of one) fit in anywhere.

Elixir is the first album Danish percussionist Marilyn Mazur has recorded as a leader for ECM in 14 years. It is an interesting number for Mazur, because she has also spent 14 years as a member of saxophonist Jan Garbarek's recording and touring ensembles. He appears on about half of Elixir as Mazur's only collaborator (apart from producer Manfred Eicher). That said, the solo pieces are the first remarkable aspect of this set. When Mazur works alone, her pieces defy everything we think we know about solo percussion recordings: there is a warmth and directness in these proceedings that is songlike rather than merely hypnotic or virtuosic.

Multi-instrumentalist Marilyn Mazur began as a child prodigy in the late 1960s and in the early ‘70s she was already leading her own group. Extremely progressive for the times, Zirenes featured Mazur as composer, pianist, voca list and dancer. Other groups followed: Six Winds, MM4 and Primi Band, all with Mazur as the creative epicenter. Mazur was extremely active on the international music scene as a member of Miles Davis’ various bands from 1985, and later toured with an impressive list of artists including Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans and Jan Gabarek. Her own group for many years, Future Song, was also an international attraction.

Excellent solo effort by Jan Garbarek’s percussionist Marilyn Mazur. With help from Eivind Aarset (N.P. Molvaer’s eclettic guitar player) and other skillful players, “Daylight Stories“ is a musical journey which pays a personal and much affectionated tribute to electric jazz of the mid seventies.

Marilyn Mazur is best known for her association with Miles Davis, but she has actually played in many settings. Born to Polish and African-American parents, Mazur has lived in Denmark since she was six. She studied classical piano and dance – eventually switching to drums – and improvised music. She attended the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music, worked locally and in 1985 was part of Palle Mikkelborg's recording of "Aura" with Davis. Soon afterward she began working with the trumpeter (off and on from 1985-89) and then had stints with Gil Evans and Wayne Shorter. In 1989 she formed her band Future Song, and in 1994 Mazur recorded as a leader for Storyville with her adventurous Pulse Unit, which mostly featured her own compositions.
