Background

Introducing the full length CD entitled Ask Me How Do I Feel . . . performed by Justin Marcus. Since his first release entitled Come Round to Me, Justin has repositioned his distinctive manner and phrasing. He has crossed over to a stylized American Songbook featuring some of the classics such as, Let’s Get Away From It All, If I Were A Bell, Embraceable You . . . to this generation’s classics -- like, Bruce Springsteen’s Meeting Across the River and Paul Simon’s America . . .. and others. The material on Ask Me How Do I Feel . . . has been well tested and is extensively proven time and time again. Justin’s technique and novel delivery add a fresh dimension to the legendary tunes on the CD. For this reason, Justin has been able to pull together an all-star band who have recorded and/or performed with the likes Wynton Marsalis, David Bowie, Paul Simon, Cassandra Wilson; Bruce Springsteen; the Rolling Stones; Bob Dylan; and U2; to name a few. To quote Michael Lydon, the well known musicologist, one of the original founders of Rolling Stone Magazine and author of the book Ray Charles: Man And Music: “. . . What you’ve got in your hands is good music: a dozen witty, soulful songs chosen with care from the American songbook, well arranged, well played, and superbly sung by Justin Marcus, a warm baritone who digs down through retro gloss to timeless modernity.” Audiences all over the country are requesting Justin Marcus’s renditions of the tunes on the CD Ask Me How Do I feel . . . the infectious tunes will “play in your head” all day long.
