about

"Marcus expertly stretches the outside of the envelope on every solo, and his sense of narrative never falls flat."
- J. Hunter (All About Jazz)

"Like Newk before him, Strickland has assembled a set of tunes with strong, direct melodies that inspire boundless reveries... Strikingly, the leader's own originals are just as memorable, and tailor-made for his tightly attuned trio... Throughout the album, the trio maintains a sound both sparse and rich, with a relaxed ease that allows for experimentation but without the airiness ever feeling empty."
- Shaun Brady (Downbeat Magazine)


"This record, honest and stubborn, stands its ground."
- Ben Ratliff (NY Times)

"The tenor player's rough 'n' tumble trio record is gutsy..."
- Jim Macnie (Village Voice)

"Marcus’s Idiosyncrasies, with E.J. on drums and Ben Williams on bass, is a streamlined acoustic trio date, steeped in jazz heritage even as it foregrounds inventive takes on tunes by OutKast, Oumou Sangare, Jaco Pastorius and others."
- David Adler (Timeout Magazine NY)

"what was best about his set was the sturdy rapport of the trio, especially on aggressively swinging originals like “Set Free” and “Cuspy’s Delight.” Playing tenor on those themes, Marcus advanced a muscular but nimble style, responding as much to his partners as they did to him."
- Nate Chinen (NY Times
