In the early morning hours of Sunday, September 25, saxophonist Steve Marcus passed away in his sleep at home in New Hope, PA.

Marcus was born September 18, 1939, in New York City. He studied at the Berklee College Of Music in Boston (1959-61) before joining Stan Kenton's Orchestra in 1963. From 1967-70, he played with the Herbie Mann Group as well as for diverse bands including those of Woody Herman and the Jazz Composers Orchestra. During the mid-60s into the early 70s, Steve Marcus was a key player in the early years of jazz/rock starting his own grouped called Count's Rock Band in 1967 with Larry Coryell, Mike Nock, and Bob Moses. In the early 70s Steve toured and recorded as a member of Larry Coryell's group. From '73-75 Count's Rock Band included Steve Khan, Steve Gadd, Will Lee, and Don Grolnick. He joined Buddy Rich in 1975, and played with him regularly over the next 10 years. His tenor and soprano playing blends Blues and R&B stylings with the influence of John Coltrane. At the time of his death Marcus was active with Steve Smith & Buddy's Buddies, a Buddy Rich alumni band, as well as Count's Jam Band which featured Larry Coryell, Kai Eckhardt and Steve Smith.
