“If you’ve picked up a flier for live music or frequented a restaurant around town, chances are you’ve heard of — or been entranced by the sounds of — jazz pianist and composer Mark Lowrey. A staple in the Kansas City jazz music scene, Lowrey has made a name for himself with his versatility, command of the piano and sound that transcends genres.
Though primarily known as a jazz musician, the Kansas City-born, Kansas City-bred artist’s résumé includes various local and national trios and ensembles, including Argentine tango ensemble Tango Lorca, renowned jazz outfit the Lonnie McFadden Quartet, folk/world group the Barclay Martin Ensemble, and Afro-Cuban ensemble the La Fonda Allstars. His live albums include Live at Jardine’s and the Kickstarter-funded love songs to KC, 18th Street Tangos. He’s dabbled in hip-hop with the experimental free jazz and freestyle hip-hop series called “Mark Lowrey vs. Hip Hop,” performed in a Radiohead concert tribute and played piano on “Dyin’ Flyin’” for Tech N9ne’s album Special Effects.” – 435 Magazine
