"Recipe for the perfect late night: grab a slice at Joe's Pizza (or polish off
some supper at Blue Hill), then catch the Marc Devine Trio at Smalls. A student
of jazz heavyweight Clark Terry, pianist Marc Devine made a name for himself in
Austin, TX before moving to New York a few years back. Devine was quickly welcomed
into the fold by some of the finest players in the city. And for obvious reasons:
emitting rich blue lows, sparkling riffs and provocative delays, the piano doesn’t
just breathe under Devine’s fingers — it laughs. The trio’s sound
is rich and energetic. Get there a few minutes after midnight for a whiskey sour
and a front row seat (or a snug corner if you’ve brought a date).
" Isabella Yeager, BeaconPass
"Devine, a swingin’, bepop-rooted
pianist and bandleader, ... working most closely under trumpeter Stephen Fulton
to develop a piano style based on influences like Texan Red Garland, Bud Powell,
Count Basie, Errol Garner, and others" Charlie Martin, KOOP 91.7 FM website
a kind of personal Taj Mahal pilgrimage: He’d been living in Austin, and the
club he played at shut down, so he sold all his stuff and moved to Harlem, where
he now lives one block away from Minton’s, one of the most important jazz
clubs in the world." Adam Sternbergh, New York Magazine
