Marilyn Mazur taps into a deep sense of collective consciousness in her work. For five decades, the Danish drummer, percussionist, and composer has constantly pushed the boundaries of the jazz and new music worlds, focusing on works and performances that crisscross genres and influences.

Mazur is firmly established as a critical part of the jazz pantheon across her performances and recordings with Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Jan Garbarek, Palle Mikkelborg, and Wayne Shorter. Notably, she is the only woman to ever serve in a Davis group, working with him during his Tutu period in the 1980s.
