Pianist and composer Marc Copland has been spinning out sounds like no other pianist since the mid-1970s. A player with a lyrical sense of touch, unique innovative harmonies, and a deep sense of swing, his output as a leader is staggering: over 40 albums, recorded for over ten different labels, featuring major jazz voices of the past and present—John Abercrombie, Ralph Alessi, Joey Baron, Mike Brecker, Randy Brecker, Dennis Chambers, Mark Ferber, Drew Gress, Billy Hart, Dave Liebman, Victor Lewis, Joe Lovano, Greg Osby, Gary Peacock, Bill Stewart, Robin Verheyen, Ken Wheeler, etc. In the last decade, he was pianist for both Gary Peacock’s trio and John Abercrombie’s quartet. — And Copland is not one to simply rest on his laurels. In 2016 he started his own label, innerVoice Jazz, and in 2019 a partner label, Illusions/Mirage. His latest release, the solo piano outing "John," received several "best of" citations from Down Beat (USA), Jazz Magazine (France), Stereoplay (Germany), Rondo (Germany) and Neue Zürcher Zeitung (Switzerland).
