Mark Sherman has been in the Downbeat Magazine's Critics and readers poll from 2007-2018. Sherman brings a deeply rooted post bop approach to a program of originals and standards, which convincingly carry on the art form with a potent level of invigorating musicianship. His music is relentlessly energetic, hard charging, and brimming with incredible improvisations from his deeply rooted skillset. In addition Sherman has recorded 18 CD’s as a leader, and over 170 CD’s as a sideman. Sherman’s most recent CD in 2019 has 1.5 million streams on Spotify. In 2011 he was given the honor of representing the United States on the US State Department /Jazz Ambassadors tour abroad with over 30 concerts and workshops in Russia, and Southeast Asia. He continues to carry on the jazz tradition through playing and education on piano/ vibes and drums as an 13 year Juilliard Jazz professor of Vibraphone and Doubles For Drummers.
