About Marcus Gilmore
This young jazz drummer is used to being part of a famous drumming family as it was his grandfather, jazz legend and fellow Zildjian artist, Roy Haynes who gave Marcus his first drumset at age ten. Now Marcus has the resume one would expect to see of a drummer decades older. He has performed with Steve Coleman, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, John Clayton, Chick Corea, Ray Barretto, Branford Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Wycliffe Gordon, Roy Hargrove, Christian Scott, and Ravi Coltrane, among many others.
