Marilyn Mazur Group plays warm and communicating music, intense and melodic, fulfilling Marilyn’s multicolored original compositions and imaginative poetic visions with lots of spontaneous energy.
Inside her large percussioninstallations, Marilyn weaves exciting patterns of beautiful sounds and mystic grooves.
In this Copenhagen-based group, Marilyn has gathered some of her closest musical friends, all very creative individualists, that have worked together for a long time :
saxophonist Fredrik Lundin (DK)
guitarist Krister Jonsson (Sweden)
bassplayer Klavs Hovman (DK)
Together these 4 musicians invite the listener in for an adventure, with both physical and spiritual qualities to explore.

December 2010 Marilyn Mazur Group released their double CD Tangled Temptations & The Magic Box, one CD being a liverecording of Marilyn’s new music for the nonverbal new interpretation of the theatrepiece “Beggar’s Opera” ; the other CD an expressive studiorecording.
Marilyn is known for her extensive work with i.e. Miles Davis and Jan Garbarek, she has played with a vast number of great musicians and in most of the world, but has focused more and more on being the powercenter in her own projects and also composing for choirs and various other settings. She is presently also working with i.e. Dhafer Youssef, Palle Mikkelborg, John Taylor, Anders Jormin, Tomasz Stanko, Nils Petter Molvær, Jan Bang.
