Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Mark Hennen. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his musical vision.
As soon as I hit the play button I was immediately fascinated by this intricate and intriguing music.
I immediately realized that I was in front of a very talented artist with great compositional experience behind him.
This controlled “chaos” slowly takes shape and reveals itself in its beauty. This music is like when a painter begins to let the first drops of color fall on the canvas, we do not understand what he wants to achieve but he can already see his masterpiece in his head.
Mark Hennen is a renowned pianist with a unique vision. His music is not for everyone as this artist tries to open our minds, to push us to understand something different.
It is as if his music carries within it a coded message from the future capable of evolving the human brain.
I was mesmerized by the quality of this music and I recommend it to everyone.
Mark solo is Mark Hennen’s Ep Out Now!
Futuristic and Hypnotic!
Mark Hennen has been at the center of the avant-garde Jazz scene in New York City for decades. A world renowned pianist and pioneer of the sound, Hennen has worked in the music industry for nearly 50 years. He has performed as a solo artist and as a member of acclaimed groups like Collective 4tet, Earth People and his current ensemble Piano Duo Trio.
Over the past year Mark Hennen has produced an impressive volume of new material. He and his fellow Piano Duo Trio members, Jackson Krall and John Blum are exploring the farthest regions of a musical form that already exists at the outer limits of artistic expression. The world of avant-garde improvisational Jazz is not for the timid musician or listener. It is the sound of world-class musicians pushing themselves into previously unimagined realms of melody and rhythm.
“Mark Solo” is the latest release from Mark Hennen, released worldwide to all major streaming services on February 10, 2022. Recorded live at Piano Magic in New York City, the 26 minute piece finds the pianist riding solo and at the top of his game as he serves up a wild set of melodic and rhythmic experimentation.
