About the Artist
…“the guitar wizardry of Mark Strickland”…~Moondog’s
The Pittsburgh renowned guitarist Mark Strickland is a very well rounded guitarist. Mark is influenced by such notable guitarist as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass and others, of the R&B, and Latin genres. Mark’s experience does not fall short of his accomplishments. He has performed with many vocal stylists, and musicians, over the years which include vocalist / drummer Grady Tate, organist Groove Holmes, bassist John Heard, and can be heard on the 2011 release of Gene Ludwig’s last CD, “Love Notes”, a tribute to Cole Porter. He is also an accomplished sound engineer, and has produced and/or engineered projects for musicians both regionally and nationally, including Dizzy Gillespie, Dakota Staton, Tommy Flanagan, and Jimmy Smith. Mark Strickland is revered throughout the area as one of the best in his field of music performance.
“Guitarist Mark Strickland, … his clean classic guitar lines was also a great choice for this style. He just had that perfect tone.” ~ Jazz Orbits
