Blues For Tahrir

Title : Blues For Tahrir
Release Date : May 14, 2015
Format : CD

Whether portraying the heartfelt reaction to a country in turmoil or casting in a new light the familiar melody of a timeless song, Marcus clearly demonstrates that he can wring deep, emotional colors from virtually any source. The hope remains that the blues he plays for Egypt’s people will become a song of triumph rather than an elegy of loss, and that the spark for future endeavors will come from the moon and summertime rather than from conflict and pain, but in Todd Marcus’s hands any of these sparks will surely ignite music worth hearing – and feeling.
