A Note from Your Mad Discographer, on The Deep Digging; The Incantations; The Inspirations; All These Words...

     I’ve been deeply involved in the arts since the mid-’70s, but I’ve never known how to monetize my talents. I’ve never had a hint
     of financial savvy; I am—like a clueless child—almost entirely dependent at the age of 69 on next week’s pay-check; and I am
     “unaffiliated” and on my own here. I also get constant feedback from people all over the world who’ve been telling me, lo these
     many decades, that the work I do is invaluable... And so I’m reaching out.
     There are expenses I constantly struggle to meet: website hosting, an Adobe account for the software that makes the website
     and book layouts possible, subscriptions to newspaper archives, and numerous other expenses. Then there are the absurd number
     of hours I feel compelled to spend gathering and organizing and formatting the information that I find.
     I receive a Social Security check that meets just about half of my living expenses, and I drive a tiny school bus part-time for
     a daycare center that barely covers the rest. So if you appreciate the work that I do and are willing and able to help a boy out
     with any amount, either one-time or monthly, I would be most grateful. —RL

Wiki Hit

Marco Eneidi was born in Portland, Oregon. His father worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and his mother
was a paralegal. Eneidi and his family lived in Livermore before moving to Oakland, California. He attended Mt. Hood
Community College before earning a Bachelor of Arts from Sonoma State University and a Master of Arts from Mills College.

—The Jeremy Fischer Memorial Jug Band: Marco, James Haygood, Roger Corman, and John E. Adams,
 Photo taken at “the Eucalyptus grove end of Chateau Way.”

1977 to 1978 : : :


Roger Corman:

“I think [Marco’s] living in the music professor’s office was in the fall 1977 to spring 1978. ... That was also the time
that I know Marco was practicing 8-12 hours a day, as I was always hanging around there as well to use the pianos.
In summer 1978 Marco moved into a house in Santa Rosa, CA with some other roommates, which included my girlfriend
(and now wife of 43 years). I knew they needed a roommate and he was looking for a place. I moved in soon after, and
Marco and I lived there until he moved to New York City in summer 1979.

I used to play with Marco when he and I were getting started. ... Fall 1978 to spring 1979.

We were the Roger & Marc Duo (I played piano), and we played frequently at the Village Inn in Monte Rio, CA. I think
those were our first professional (paying) gigs, ... although [they] didn’t pay much.
We played ... a lot of tunes out of The Real Book (1st edition), jazz standards of the day. I remember Marco really liked
“Lullaby of Birdland,”—we played that regularly. Marco taught me to find the lyrics to all the standards (which weren’t
included in The Real Book) so that you could better interpret the song and keep the melody and words in your head when
soloing. Marco was mostly all straight-ahead in those days, although was listening to Ornette, Cecil, etc.
[Roger Corman 23.07.06 + 07.07]



  • 78.05.16 - Marco Eneidi (as), Roger Corman (p), Brad Rapp (g),
    Rocky Klemenok (b), Micki Singer (dr) /
    The Commons, Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, CA
    [Roger Corman FB posting 20.05.29; poster by Brad Rapp]
    —“They were some of the best musicians I ever played with, and we played together
     a lot in those days. (We were all in college and just getting started in our music
     careers.) ... It was a beautiful day outdoors on the lawn in front of the Commons.”
     —Roger Corman

1979 : : :


“In spring of 1979 we both joined the CETA band, which was put together by the local musicians union (Musicians Local 292) with Glenn Blair (a great sax player) as the leader. It was a full-time music job, paid for by the state of California, to play for non-profits (schools, hospitals, prisons, etc.).
Dan Shea was in that group as well—he’s a great music producer. ... He left to go to New York just before Marco left—the two were pretty close friends. ... Marco left that job in summer of 1979 to move to New York City, and the rest is history.”
[Roger Corman 23.07.07]


Marco, February 2, 2014:

“In 1979 in San Francisco I was taking lessons with Sonny Simmons down at his SRO hotel
in the Tenderloin. ... It was ‘Time for a Lou Raws!!!!’...(tall budweiser), or if it was morning ‘Time for a Thunderball!!!!’
(T-bird mixed with koolaid). But during the time together, ... it was all about Long Tones and getting a sound. The sound
and tone. Sonny Simmons: SS gangster with a gun under the belt.”


Damon Smith: “I mostly learned from Marco Eneidi.”
Marco: “After giving you a lesson one day, Damon, and drinking a personal half-pint of Hennessy for breakfast, I went
down to the Community College for my World History course and came back home to find a girl/woman dressed like li’l
Bo Peep willfully tied into my bed. She stalked me for years and years, then she decided to give up acting and become
a free-range pig farmer in Sonoma County. Thank you for the birthday gift.”


1981 : : :


Marco, May 5, 2010:

“I first met Denis Charles in August 1981. I was standing outside of Charas/El Bohio, the P.S. 64 school on 9th Street
between Avenues B and C that had been taken over in 1979 by Armando Perez along with Carlos ‘Chino’ Garcia and
turned into a community center, and the great alto player Jemeel Moondoc was now holding rehearsals in a studio
that he had there.
Jemeel’s band at the time included William Parker, Ellen Christie, Roy Campbell and Denis. The band was taking
a break and had stepped outside. Roy, seeing me sitting on the steps with my horn came over and introduced himself
to me. Over the years, Denis became a very dear friend, mentor, musical collegue and co-conspiritor.
Yip Harburg, the man who ‘put the rainbow in “Over The Rainbow”’ was a P.S. 64 alum.
‘Wake up Loisaida, defend what’s yours, Wake up Boricua, defend what’s yours!’ —Armando Perez.”


Marco, January 10, 2014:

“I first met Roy Campbell within a week or two after first moving to NYC in August of 1981. They had all come down
from upstairs onto the street at Charas/El Bohio on 9th Street just east of Avenue B. He saw me sitting there on the steps
and that I had my horn with me and introduced himself and the rest of the band: Denis Charles, Ellen Christi, William
Parker and the leader Jemeel Moondoc. He told me it was an open rehearsal every week and I would be welcome to
come on down and participate.
We played together in a number of groups led by William later that fall, and I was always going down to Moondoc’s
concerts and seeing them as well. December ’81, I became a member of the Sahib Sarbib Multinational Orchestra
of which Roy was also a member. We played together in many different configurations over the next years including
Jemeel’s ’Jus Grew Orchestra, Sound Unity Festival configurations including with Don Cherry, the New York
Improvisers Collective, and William Parker’s Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra, among others.”

day when he was in town at Denis Charles’s pad on East 7th Street,
between B and C. One of the most musical cats I’ve ever met. This
was one of the first times I got to do something with him at the Sound
Unity Festival, Spring ’84. Hoopie Hoopie Kangaroo. Several months
later, I was ready.”

—“Though listed on side A of the LP, ‘Time II’ occupies the first band on the record’s B side.”
Track 12: “Dixon’s flugelhorn solo is incomplete due to a tape switch on the video original,
 but that tape still holds roughly 30 seconds following his first phrase that do not appear on the record.”
Track 13: “LP timed at 8:45. That piece too was probably edited for Thoughts.”

    [Bennington Banner Aug 30 p.13]

Stanley ‘Jason’ Zappa (nephew of Frank) via Marco, February 20, 2012:

In the early 1990s I spent a few years living in the Upstate New York village of Cambridge, some 10 miles across the border
from North Bennington, Vermont. It had already been some seven years since I was on the faculty of Bennington College
as Artist-in-Residence in the Black Music division working with Bill Dixon, but I would still on occasion go over to practice
in the Paul Robeson House. Stanley ‘Jason’ Zappa ... was a student of Bill’s at the time as was John Blum, Nick Skrowaczewski,
and Matt Weston. These are some of Jason’s thoughts on my presence there at the time:

 “But it comes only to those in dire imaginative need of it, though it may come then as terror. And this need is learned first
  through the young improviser or ephebe’s experience of another improviser, of the Other whose baleful greatness is enhanced
  by the ephebe’s seeing him as ‘a burning brightness against a framing darkness.’
  For many Bennington ephebes, Marco was that ‘Other.’ Musically, there was no lack of darkness when I was there. To put it
  mildly, the not-Bill-Dixon music division was not without its challenges or shortcomings. Student concerts were, for the most
  part, agonizing. Faculty concerts, rich in technique and cultivated sentiment begged the question ‘if this is what it all means,
  why not the trades?’ Behold a framing darkness.
  Marco would practice in the ‘Barbara Ushkow Deane Carriage Barn,’ once called the ‘Paul Robeson House.’ This is where
  Bill Dixon would teach his ensemble class, and where all the ‘brightly burning’ music of Bennington college was happening.
  (To this day I am unsure just who Barbara Ushkow Deane is in the musical Canon.)
  When Marco would practice, terror was a common reaction. People (and by people I don’t only mean me) wouldn’t enter
  the building, but instead stood outside, meekly looking at their shoes, listening intently, taking their kicks, waiting for the
  frightening sound to stop—waiting for when it was safe to go in. Waiting to see if we were still ephebe improvisers or mere
  victims. Hearing Marco it became immediately apparent that his was a sound that came only from total-total dedication and
  subsequently, a life of ‘rallying what remains.’ Upon hearing Marco (and the same can be said for Dixon’s performance at
  the Bennington faculty concert in 1989) it quickly came clear that I was not the same, nor would ever be the same again.
  There is no ‘un hearing’ some music.”

“Earlier this month, a crash involving two fire trucks did significant damage to the avant-garde Mission District cafe and music venue Radio Valencia. Co-owner Don Alan promises that the place will be back in action by the fall. While awaiting repair work, Alan and friends have organized a benefit to wipe away some unpaid bills that have accumulated since the accident. More than 50 musicians ... will perform.”

The Plonsey View

—“William Parker started the concert off with a set of solo bass music. His first piece was so over-the-top, over-the-bottom,
all over the bass—that I lost the ability to concentrate on the music. There was a beautiful shimmery piece of harmonics,
and finally a great little story about boys stealing from musicians, but being stopped in their tracks as they run away by
the sound of the music.

Eneidi’s Orchestra played one long piece. The group consisted of about seven saxes and clarinets, a chorus of five or six
people, perhaps five bass players, two drummers, and Parker on tuba. The music consisted of about ten musical fragments
for the orchestra, and perhaps as many textural fragments for the chorus. Simple as these were, Eneidi wove them together
with dexterity, keeping things moving, making contrasts, queing soloists (Levin, visiting from Philadelphia, impressed many
with the ferocity of his tenor playing.) ... A powerful, loud set of blocks of bright colors, big unisons, shrieking solos.”
—Dan Plonsey

    [LA Weekly January 24-30, 1997 p.88 + p.107]

“Eneidi’s Orchestra played one long piece. The group consisted of about seven saxes and clarinets, a chorus of five or six

for the orchestra, and perhaps as many textural fragments for the chorus. Simple as these were, Eneidi wove them together
with dexterity, keeping things moving, making contrasts, cueing soloists.” —Dan Plonsey


Marco, April 15, 2014: “William did a workshop, played a solo, and then we did the Orchestra. It wasn’t called Beanbender’s
yet—me and Glenn had our orchestra there doing a weekly rehearsal/performance for a full year before the Bean guys came
in and ousted us. It was the Berkeley Store Gallery, run by the same wonderful woman Bonnie who now is in charge of another
place just down around the corner under the name of Berkeley Arts.”

document William running through a couple sections of ‘Mass for the Healing of the World’ at the Vison Fest 3 Little
Huey gig (in preparation for the concert/recording date in Verona). ...
A comparison between Little Huey’s Black Saint recording of ‘Mass for the Healing of the World’ and the WKCR-FM
archival DAT (40:35) of the Vison Fest gig (24 May 1998) has confirmed that they ran through three sections of the work
in the earlier NYC concert: ‘Invocation,’ ‘1st Reading,’ and ‘Dawn Song’ (n.b. they fleshed out middle section considerably
with additional individual solos and collective improvisations). The festival MC introducing the band announced that they
would be performing ‘A First Reading from Mass for the Healing of the World,’ and repeated this identification once again
at the end. ... In addition to the personnel you [had] listed, Richard Rodriguez (tp) and Aleta Hayes (voc) performed with
the band (but were somehow left off the program)—the guests were Charlie Waters (of Gold Sparkle Band), Kidd Jordan,

“The American Jungle Orchestra has seen various incarnations over its 18 plus months of existence. However, most of the
creative musicians in the area have sat in rehearsals and shows during that time. This past June and July has seen the
formation of a solid group of 20 players.
Marco chose two pieces for the current shows: a lengthy, intricate score by Jimmy Lyons called “Something is the Matter,”
[written] for the orchestra Bill Dixon was conducting at Bennington in 1975; and one of his own pieces called “Hallelujah”
—a jump or riff tune.
By the time the orchestra played Yoshi’s on July 20th it had already done two warmup shows at the Luggage Store in San
Francisco, and both pieces were well-received by an enthusiastic audience of over a hundred people.”

Paying Tribute to Saxophonist

While Glenn Spearman’s death of colon cancer last month at age 51 was a huge loss to the Bay Area’s improvised-music
community, the saxophonist’s ethos lives on in many ways—in the audience he helped develop, in the venues that sprang up
to serve the audience and, most importantly, in the musicians that carry on the tradition he advanced.

Dozens of these artists will participate in a benefit tribute to Spearman at Berkeley’s Beanbender’s on Saturday, with the
proceeds going to his family. Spearman was a firebrand on the sax, best known for his unfettered, hurricane-like blowing, a
signature of the free-jazz tradition he was schooled in. His gift involved wrapping his improvisational explosions in suite-like
structures and using simple, beautiful melodies to ignite a musical conflagration. This balance of improvisation and composition
came to fruition in the Glenn Spearman Double Trio, a union of two bands—Spearman’s own Trio, and Room, an avant-garde
classical outfit featuring electronics, saxophone, and percussion. Room’s electronics whiz Chris Brown, who plays acoustic
piano in the Double Trio and co-directs the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College, explains: “Room was very into
composed structures. Glenn’s idea was you had a series of notes —it could be very simple—and you took off from there. It was
totally exhilarating. ... A kind of ecstatic dialogue would take place, where everybody was sort of speaking in tongues, playing
more with their bodies than anything else.”

When the Double Trio performs at the benefit Saturday, Spearman’s slot will be taken by his brilliant alto-sax-playing
colleague Marco Eneidi. The second saxophonist, Larry Ochs, will be out of town, so someone yet to be named will attempt
to fill his shoes. The rest of the bill consists of a constellation of bands Spearman either led or played with: an expanded ROVA
saxophone lineup, G-Force (featuring Eneidi, Lisle Ellis, James Routhier and Donald Robinson), Matthew Goodheart, Positive
Knowledge, J.D. Parran, Vinny Golia, Ben Lindgren, poet Jack Foley, Room’s percussion ace Willie Winant, Kash Killion,
and others. Closing the show will be the American Jungle Orchestra, a 30-strong blend of professionals and students taught
by Spearman and Eneidi.

All present will recall Spearman as someone who pushed them deeper into their music. “We propelled each other,” says Eneidi
of his late friend. “We really locked up. I never had that with anybody else.”

“This was to be Hot Rodney’s first show. “The Delivery Room’s new music series, Hot Rodney’s Bar and Grill, was shut
down Saturday, January 6th, at 9 p.m., by a plainclothes officer and a police sergeant. They could not have been acting upon
any complaint about noise, for not a single note had been played. ...
The officer knew in advance where to turn up and what to look for, and she wrote down in her notebook—‘shrewd doorman,’
‘milk and cookies.’
During the crackdown, 20 or 30 audience members and musicians continued conversing in soft tones that contrasted sharply
with the barking of the officer. I was tempted, as I think everyone else was, to resist passively by standing my ground. But
like everyone else, I sensed that resisting might result in the threatened confiscation of instruments and a $10,000 fine given
to Delivery Room. ...
A few days later, Rodney announced that by order of the SFPD, The Bar and Grill was closed until further notice.”

Robert D. Rusch, from the liners:

By the time the trio arrived, in mid-afternoon of May 17, I really was not sure where their focus was. Lisle now informed me
“a little of this, a little of that.”
Uh huh. However, as this was the end of an extensive tour (at one point involving 21 dates in 21 days) that eventually would
cover some 8,000 plus miles of driving, I had confidence that the trio had a pretty good idea of what they were doing and that
this would be a pretty seamless recording experience. ...
The group opened the session on the relaxed, sultry “Contractual Obligation Blues.” The first take had beauty but was relaxed
to the point of diffuseness. The second take (issued here) was a lesson in how to burn while staying cool. After that it took
awhile for the group to get into what might be called a coordinated unconsciousness. That finally came together on the second
take of “News Blues,” when they reached a point when all distractions were suspended except the musical activity and
interactivity.
At this point, Lisle explained how after a month of playing this music suite-like in hour-long sets, they were now trying to pry
it apart and, in effect, present each piece in its own setting. This was not going to be as seamless as I'd imagined. Nevertheless,
by the end of the evening’s session, we had the better part of this release logged in, bringing the evening to an end and just
short of fatigue with a single take on “Baby Please Don’t Go.”
The morning of the 18th was warm, wet, and dreary and the opening session was addressed in a leisurely manner. After some
warm up and run-throughs, Lisle said they were going to run through, as in rehearse, “American Roadwork,” to which Peter
responded, “So record it.”
And so we did; it is issued here.
Sometimes it seems that simple. The trio followed this with “Dreamt Up Blues #6 Pt.1,” a piece with a somewhat tentative
beginning which builds powerfully over Peter’s solid mosaic of percussion then settles down only to rejuvenate its powerful
edgy assault. Its first wave sets you up, only to sucker punch you with the second. Marco’s comment at the end was “Yes! ...
good morning.”
We finished the day with “Vienna Blues,” one of those ballads of which Marco spoke to me the previous year. And then they
launched into “Short & Clean” as sort of a tag to the two days’ work.”

That Plane Already Took Flight

“‘Refugee from America, currently living in Austria’ reads Marco Eneidi’s website. ... ‘I just needed a break. I was tired
of still living hand to mouth after so many years, constantly afraid of not being able to pay the rent and losing the apartment.
For me it always was a fight.’
After Eneidi missed his return flight after a concert in Nickelsdorf in 2004 and saw ‘that the rents here are a fifth of those
in California, that there is affordable health insurance and I can live modestly from playing,’ he decided to settle in Austria. ...
He made contacts during the freely accessible Monday sessions he had led since September 2005 at the Celeste in Vienna-
Margareten. US colleagues like Ken Vandermark have been guests there, and some free spirits from the techno noise rock
scene also appear regularly, led by keyboardist Philipp Quehenberger and fuckhead drummer Didi Kern.
Eneidi: ‘For someone like me, who comes from Afro-American avant-garde jazz, working with Philipp and Didi means
a new world. We have held many private viewings, including one by Franz West, who is often a guest at the Celeste.’
It seems logical that the free sessions, which the Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love describes as ‘unique in the world’
in their weekly consistency, are now having an effect on the event to which Eneidi owes its new home: This year, as part of
the Nickelsdorfer ‘Konfrontations’ will be ‘confrontations’—in addition to celebrities from Europe and the USA—two
formations will be represented that have grown out of the informal meetings. On the one hand the ‘From Oslo to Beirut’
ensemble (including the Lebanese Mazen Kerbaj and Sharif Shenaoui), on the other hand the Full Moon Barkestra.”

Menu Below!

“Marco Eneidi is one of a very few who have brought an international level of playing to bay area creative music venues
for nearly a decade. This two day festival is to show appreciation for not only his virtuoso playing, but his organizing
(Glenn Spearman festival) and education. Many younger musicians have worked with Mr. Eneidi and learned about the
music in that process. More important than losing a few venues, we are losing one of our only master musicians to
Europe. This festival will feature new old ensembles, all featuring Eneidi with local and international guests. Includes
Italian meal prepared by Marco Eneidi, menu below!

“This show was the final presentation from Oakland’s ‘Jazz in Flight’ organization and was Marco’s last appearance
before he left for Europe permanently, I believe. There were two sets and there were no song titles, the pieces were
mostly improvised. Set one had about five compositions and set two had about four, many of them transitioned into
each other.” —Timothy Orr

Thomas Albert Zlabinger, from his Thesis...

“My first trip to Vienna as a performing musician was in March 2008 when Marco Eneidi asked me to perform with
a large group ... at the Blue Tomato. ... In late 2007, I had e-mailed Eneidi about my dissertation as a musician in New
York suggesting that I contact him regarding jazz and improvised music in Vienna. When he responded he included
an invitation to be part of the mentioned performance. I quickly said yes, booked a flight, and made arrangements
to rent a bass while I was there.
In addition to performing with Eneidi and his ensemble, I also participated in jam sessions at Blue Tomato (the night
before our performance) and at Celeste (hosted by Eneidi). ... I had never performed with any of the musicians in
Eneidi’s ensemble before. The closest thing to a rehearsal was performing the night before our performance at the
same venue with Eneidi, Smith (who was there a day early), and drummer Wolfgang Reisinger (who hosted the jam
session). Our quartet performed a free jazz swing groove, with everyone knowing what to do. At the time I was so
nervous, playing in a club I had never been in, performing on a rented instrument, and making my international debut
as a musician. But as people got off the stage, I could tell that it went well.”

    [marcoeneidi.com Upcoming Performances]

“The next night we performed with the entire ensemble as ITCHYSCRATCHY AUDIOMAZE. There was again no
rehearsal, except a short soundcheck. We performed two completely free sets. Each musician was given a chance to
solo in each set. With two bassists, there was harmonic cacophony and I really could not hear Smith well. At one point
he stopped performing and made music with his laptop, which helped focus the performance. The most interesting
contributor to the performance was Falb, who used scratched and undamaged records (including a copy of Braxton’s
New York, Fall 1974), upside-down broken cymbals, marbles, and other objects to get ferocious sounds from his
turntables. ... Eneidi cut through the wall of sound which remained a backdrop that propelled him forward. During
the performance, the Blue Tomato was full and people listened to our music while they ate, drank, and smoked.”

FB Musings by Eric Arn:

“Celeste Experience 9.03.09 - We entered another dimly lit, smoky cellar hidden beneath Vienna, but what we found changed
everything. Picture Eduardo Marraffa, Italian wild man on tenor sax plus dreadlocked dervish Michael Zerang ... plus regular
Monday night ringleader Marco Eneidi. ... These three spewed out 150-proof truth; singing, screaming, tickling, uncut freedom
into our ears, sending all minds present into a hypnotic mantric tantric journey to the center of the I and back to that little
basement where we could all have a good laugh and unstoppable smile as drummer extraordinaire Paal Nilssen-Love joined in
(in town with Peter Brötzmann). This kicked it all into turbo-charged high gear, and all the colors of the free-improv spectrum
were explored. By the time it tapered off (2, 3 am?) the psychic fallout was palpable. See you next week.”

Insider tip from Vienna: Improvisation music up close

“In 2005, with ‘The New New York/Vienna Institute of Improvised Music,’ he founded the Monday jam sessions
in the Celeste’s Jazz Cellar. There is no fixed band line-up behind this, but a meeting of interested parties who ‘jam’
together for an evening under the direction of ‘Master of Ceremony’ Eneidi.
Stylistically, what’s on offer is based on free jazz, but the whole thing can’t really be assigned to serious or light
music, since the participating musicians have different musical backgrounds. In the meantime, a pool of musicians
who regularly take part in the Monday sessions has crystallized, coming from the fields of jazz, noise rock, punk,
and electronic music, among others. Newcomers are welcome, however, and touring musicians who have an evening
off often join as well.
What the performers have in common is openness to new experiences and the will to expand their musical spectrum.
Each concert has its very own dynamic and thus becomes a field for practice and experimentation. In addition, these
meetings also offer a good opportunity to make new contacts. It is not uncommon for new formations to emerge
from the encounters and performances to be arranged mutually.”

“Marco Eneidi has been drawing up his concept for a long time years in his Monday night sessions at the Celeste, and it really
is one of the freshest places in Vienna where you can experience new music, with all the consequences from ‘beautiful failure’
to wonderful results. It is therefore important for the Nickelsdorf Jazz Gallery to follow Marco’s path and give him the chance
at least once a year in Nickelsdorf to show his progress and development with such different musicians from the classical, free
jazz and ‘old punk’ areas to let the ‘noise music’ be presented.
In the second part of the evening there will be spontaneous open encounters.”

{SON006}


Just the Band

“The digital (and limited cassette) release is made up of eight short segments seemingly edited from a longer free
improvisation. The recording ...d sheds light on a thus-far undocumented facet of Eneidi’s work: the trio with which
he played for art openings and art world parties after his move to Austria in 2004. Those luxurious settings, with
original Warhols and Pollocks on the walls, starkly contrasted with Eneidi’s life story. ‘But quite often,’ Eneidi said,
‘we are “just the band.”’ In this trio, Eneidi ... worked with synthesizer player Philipp Quehenberger and drummer
Didi Kern. In line with the no-genre-barriers free improvisation sessions Eneidi oversaw in Vienna, his partners
were coming from diverse backgrounds encompassing punk and techno.
Quehenberger uses his synth to explore the outer regions of electronic sound, contributing heavily to the framing
of the music. The sounds used shift rapidly, creating, in combination with Kern’s percussion work, a moving
landscape over which Eneidi projects sharp lines using his characteristically intense tone, before often retreating
into silence. An interesting aspect of Quehenberger and Kern is the rotating function they assign to their instruments.
On ‘Say What?,’ propelled by drums, keyboard starts out playing something akin to a double bass furiously plucked.
On ‘7 Years,’ Quehenberger uses sounds with sharp attacks reminiscent of orchestral percussion. Coloristic drumming
often blends with wide electronic waves. Eneidi is maybe at his best on ‘Up 2 Whom?,’ soloing at his closest to
classic free jazz, joined by a keyboard of rare electronic expressivity. ‘Music for Franz West’—an Austrian artist
with whom the trio worked most often—seems to be recorded for a context, not provided here, but the window those
fragments open on the late life work of one of jazz’ great alto saxophonists is certainly a welcome one.

“I can only address the situation at the September 2010 session. While initially it was proposed that each of us was to select a grouping
whose work was was to be linked to a specific visual artist, no examples of the latter were directly utilized in any way. More to the point,
while outlines were sometimes provided by Fritz and others for specific pieces, the ‘primary improcomposer’ designation, was, far as
I could tell, and well in keeping with the late Fritz Novotny’s egalitarianism, randomly devised to give each participant credit as a ‘leader.’”
—Milo Fine

“We were all assigned our individual location to relate our Impro-compositions to, as each of these subway stations had a different
painter create the art work for a station. Now in 1993 we opened the first one with a live performance, ‘55 Steps through Europe’
at U3 Europa Platz.
A few years later, as one subway line was extended, many different events took place around the new station and we also performed
live there. Marco then joined us for the culminative celebration ... at [Porgy & Bess] and the recording of the CDs for the book
which was published about the art in Vienna’s subways.” —Hans Echnaton Schano

      preparations for two days of recording followed by concerts in Plauen and Leipzig, and back to Dresden.
      This trio right from the very beginning had that special magic which we all knew immediately had what it takes to make a
      permanent working group. We will most likely be joined by bassist Barre Phillips this next Spring.”

Marco, October 31, 2011:

“Had a great time taking part in the Jazzores Festival in Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel in the Azores Islands. Performed in a wonderful theater/concert hall built in 1909 with the best acoustics one could ever wish for. Unfortunately I only was able to spend two days there which, after taking 16 hours to get there from my apartment to the hotel, was not enough time to explore the island. The weather was beautiful and sunny, 18 degrees Celsius with the Atlantic at 23 degrees. The trio with Donald Robinson on drums and Juini Booth on contra-bass was interesting and great to say the least, but rife with personality clashes between Juini and Don which naturally had an affect on the music and what was taking place on the bandstand, which is sad as this trio would otherwise have some great possibilties for further work and performing.
After 12 hours travel today I went straight from the airport to Celeste where we have our regular Monday nite session which on this evening was graced by the participation of John Tchicai playing both tenor saxophone and flute and sounding just so great and bringing a needed depth to the music which is sometimes forgotten.”

Marco, December 9, 2011:

“Got the horn back from the saxophone doctor, just a few little adjustments which take less than an hour but sometimes can
make all the difference. Speed, articulation, and tone response, at the end of the day, all relate to the Breath, which means
one’s posture to properly support. If one is tired, well, to be a musician means one has to be an athlete, this is already a given.
Doing this for 35 years now, I am still working on the same fundamental rudiments of just blowing air thru a piece of metal
every day and it still kicks my ass every day. The notes aren’t so important so long as the tone, and to have the ability to
bounce around up and down and still have a sound at high speed and not sound like a goddamn kazoo, as 90% of today’s
‘Flavor of the Month’ menus serve. But of course, knowledge of the construction of music and Western tempered harmony
and melody if one is to play in this style is expected. This is the challenge and why I keep on doing it, because it will never
be perfect and I have more work to do. Otherwise I would have moved on to the next challenge.
After all these years of working on it, it all is finally clicking together. The physical aspects of the horn—my control of tone
and technique has finally come to where my ideas can really and truly freely flow. Well, I am a slow leaner and late bloomer,
and for those who may sniff and poo poo at me, well...... But one thing I have been doing here in Vienna is sharpening my
knives, and like puttin’ lipstick-on-a-pig, at the end of the day I am a Scorpio... LOL.
Vienna is now full with all the Holy Christ Child Market tourists and it's like wading thru a field of rude Kows.”

  • The Bomb

    RL, October 25, 2021: “Sandra and I decided to drive from Erie, PA down to Washington, DC to hear the Marco Eneidi
    + Joe Morris + William Parker Trio at Bohemian Caverns. I had started the Eneidi Discography in December of 2000,
    and brought him to Erie for a gig at the Erie Art Museum Annex about six months later. I also had a Discography for
    Joe Morris [since abandoned, so sorry] launched earlier that year, and The William Parker Sessionography [published
    in 2014, hardly updated since 2018, so sorry] born in early 1999. So we just had to go!
    I was standing outside that night waiting for the doors to open, and Marco popped out, saw me, and yelled, ‘Riiiiiick!!’
    which just floored me, and he started raving about the veggie lasagna I’d made for him the evening of the Erie gig.
    I was more than a little amazed that he had liked it enough to remember it twelve years later.
    The concert in DC that night was truly awe-inspiring. I got to chat with Marco between sets, since I had a history with
    him and so felt he was a ‘familiar,’ but of course my hideously over-developed social phobias kept me from Morris,
    who I don’t recall speaking to at all, and Willi’m, who I believe I said about three words to before freezing up and
    bailing. Truth is, I have never been comfortable in this world, and it has cost me... :-(
    This post though, is all about my finding the unknown photo below on a blog. That’s my lovely wife Sandra behind
    and to the left of Morris, and I’m on his right. Fascinating!! (Abigail Adams Greenway met us there and is probably
    directly behind Joe.) ♥
    Oh, and Marco left us a few years ago this month, and I'm missing him.”
    Jessica Loos: “Yes. That lasagna was the bomb!”


     Marco, November 10, 2012: “Rick Lopez drove all the way down from Erie, PA, for this concert
      in D.C., and there he is with Sandra and Abigail Adams Greenway (not visible)!!

“I flew into Washington DC from Lagos yesterday. Arrived early in the morning and the hotel didn't have any rooms ready.
People were hanging out in the tiny lobby when I returned in the afternoon to check in. One man sitting on the sofa looked
strangely familiar, like I knew him from somewhere before, but I couldn't quite place the face.
Coming down in the elevator I noticed that the guy standing next to me was holding an alto case so I struck up some small-talk
conversation, you know—are you a musician, what kind of music do you like to play, what kind of horn do you play? He was
Marco Eneidi, Viennese alto saxophonist with whom I was not previously familiar but who has played with the likes of Cecil
Taylor, in town for a one-night stand at Bohemian Caverns. Marco said he was there with a trio, a guitar player and a bassist.
So he proceeded to introduce me to the man sitting on the couch. ‘This is my bass player.’ I shook his hand and asked his name.
“William Parker” was the reply.
My jaw dropped. William Parker? One of the best bass players on the planet, icon of creative free improvisation, and prolific
recording artist who has been on my playlist for years? Then up walked the guitar player, Joe Morris, ostensible leader of
the trio at Bohemian Caverns, who I knew from his recordings with great saxophonists like Ken Vandermark and Anthony
Braxton—not your garden variety rhythm section by any means. Maybe one of the finest free jazz collaborations playing
today. We chatted for a while. William talked about how musicians create positive energy and help keep the world from
imploding.
I went to 11th and U. at 7:00 pm to hear the trio’s gig. Two hours of sublime, cerebral free improvisation for an attentive
but small audience, well less than a hundred, in a funky basement. The two one-hour sets passed like ten minutes. It was great
for me to hear such high-level free improvisation after so long. I must thank Joe Morris, William Parker, and Marco Eneidi
for not only staying dedicated to the cause but also making a success of it. Joe said that he is just a regular human being and
that he has worked hard to be able to speak through his instrument. He told me that we should continue our conversation
online—too bad I don’t do Facebook.
You never know what is going to happen when you wake up in the morning; I certainly never expected to run into William
Parker and hear such superb music when I got out of bed yesterday. One of the good surprises life holds.”

“ALERT—VIENNA DRIVE BY”

“Some things happen just the way they are supposed to. After a 12-hour flight from Seoul, Korea to Vienna I finally arrived,
and so hyped and engergized that I could not contain myself. I immediately ran over to Celeste, Vienna’s premier spot for
improvised, creative, intellectual, funky, jazzy, organic, and everything else of music and sound. It was a blast with Marco
Eneidi being the host and leader. ...
When my flight finally came in I ran over there and when I walked through the door it was so cool to see folks, bohemians,
onlookers, artist, creative types, all there to check out what Marco had been putting down. And putting down he was. He was
blowing his tail off along with a drummer and I immediately joined in along with another musician that was very interesting.
The music took off to the strastophere with everyone left speechless. It was refreshing to me to witness what I have always
known of creative music being very organic and very appealing in strange kind of way. The folks who were there knew what
they were getting and wanted it. Vienna always being a place of creative music and one of the few places in Europe where
folks are serious about serious music. ... It felt good. The musicians who were putting down were Jamaaladeen Tacuma,
Philipp Quehenberger, Didi Kern, Eric Arn, Herbert Lacina, and of course Marco Eneidi.”

Marco to RL, January 27, 2014, 11:14pm:

“Really, you think I should make the move and just go? It would be a major set-back for me as far as quality of life, lose
health care and pension, but maybe step forward for the music. I have no colleaugues here, I see nobody the entire week
except Monday nights. Kinda lonley so I just do my work and speak to no one the entire week, for years now. Kind of
a drag but it is nice I got a cool place to workout in and got a piano which I play 2-3 hours a day.
Would be a really hard move to make just from the physical shit. But I am really on the verge of doing that. And just
try to make the next step forward. All I want to do is play some music and pay the rent. ...
Finacially it is not so easy and maybe a disaster in the making. healthcare here is the only reason I am still alive today,
and I say that in all serious. They saved my life.
But hey dude, complain as I must. Man, I been practicing, no more single-parent, no girl friend, no straight job. I am
actually playing the shit out of the piano, and yeah, my typing spelling is not so good [I’m fixing it up. —RL] and so
I left it that way on porposeie. [sic]
But, I think I can play the horn now, I say that in all seriouness and I think when you hear me next maybe you will
like/dig. I don’t know, just having fun and happy to be having first-world problems. Then again I am totally ready to
go camping ’cause already there and know how to do that. Rambo!!!!! In the woods.
Anyway, we be working on it and all I do every day is go to my joint in the cellar and practice. Wonderful, yeah? No wife,
no kid, no job, no food, no haircut. But hahaha Rick, I think I finally learned how to play this god damn piece of metal. ...”

“I’m coming to you Rick, coming to a place near you. Where the chipmonks eat grass and fry up real well. Gonna be
nearby somehow soon. Was beduetet soon? Keine anung, vierleicht diesem Frueling, oder spater. [What does soon mean?
No idea, maybe this spring or later.] The time is now and maybe I have to bite the bullet. ... Pushing and schoving myself
forward and in yo face. Herr Dr./Mr./Professor Eneidi would like to play at your banquet and be the special honored guest.
Ya dig wha’ I be saying Rick!!!!!!!!
The Erie Art Foundation should hire me to teach some modern improvisation/composition and Black American Music
post-1960s, run a creative music orchestra and just be a swell guy living in Erie with a warm dry place to live and
enough food to not lose weight but not get fat.”
RL: “Is cheap here. Cheap and COLD!”
Marco: “Berlin is cheap also, but one can’t make any money. Vienna is a litte bit more expensive for the rent (second
cheapest after Berlin) but one can make money. Unfortunately my income has dropped to scheiss and I have to seriously
think about splitting. ...
Ich kann nicht als eine Amurikan arbeit als [I can’t work as an Amurikan] dishwasher/slave work, where at least in the
States I could maybe do that at the least. ... Fuck, I just want to work/perform and make my bills and food and then lay
in the sun on the beach. ... I was really trying to move ahead. So maybe one has to go where the grass can grow, even if
the grass is dead and doesn’t grow. Because I hit a wall here and things won’t change and then I will just get old and live
in a nice Oesterreich pension leben and say hahaha, but I want to be performing . . . . Ah, shit christ. I might be leaving
very shortly and take that crapshoot gamble and sacrifice all that I have here in an attempt to do something else. My work
here is done as I see it. ...”

Marco, January 28, 2014:

“If I had money I would be bouncing all over the planet and performing here and there. My wish is to do a recording
with Orphy Vibes, Pat Thomas, rap poet Finn, William Parker, and Hamid Drake! Need some bread$$$$. Dreams are
dreams so we do what we can do and that’s it.”

“Hey Yodelay he who!!! What’s shakin’ in New Haven Town? Can one survive and actually find a job washing dishes?
Or better there? Basically what I am asking of those in the local know, is it a place where one can actually live/survive,
pay the rent and buy some food? By way of music students, substitute teaching, whatever, and also have a space to
practice and work in? Or is it just another . . . . . .
Just checking out other feelings and thoughts. ... The last two years have gone real downhill and leaving may not not
even be a choice but a forced out.”


Marco, February 2, 2014:

“And this is why I guess I don’t fit in the Euro-style or amurikan white institutional-style of things playing-wise I guess,
even among the ‘extended new music technique,’ even tho I am quite a conservative player who plays melodie and
harmonie even tho the harmony is non-functional. Well my life is not functional either:

(William Parker on Wilbur Ware)
‘One of the most important music lessons I had was when I was studying with the bassist Wilbur Ware. At the time
Wilbur was living on East 11th Street between Avenues B and C. I would knock on the door of Wilbur’s ground-floor
apartment and the following exchange would take place.
WP: Knock knock. (Knocking on the door)
WW: Who’s there? . . . Who’s there?
WP: It’s me, Wilbur—Parker.
WW: (Opening the door) Do I know you?
WP: Wilbur?
Long pause.
Wilbur points to the bass on the floor in the living room and he says, ‘You can’t play that. You can’t play.’ I go inside
the apartment. Wilbur would pick up the bass and play a passage, mostly intervals, octaves, 9ths, 13ths or something
like that. Then he would hand me the bass. If I played what he played he would say ‘No, No No No.’ If I played it my
way he would say, ‘That’s it.’ He would then yell out ‘It’s six-pack time.’ I would run out and get him a six-pack.
I once asked Wilbur what Monk told him to play. He said that Monk told him to play whatever he wanted. I wasn’t sure
if Wilbur Ware knew anything about music but I did know he was a great musician and he comfortably walked to a
different beat. He was not afraid to be himself. I also learned that there are many systems of music, and that music was
much more than notes, scales, and theory. In fact that was the least important part. There may be a different system of
music for each musician in the world.’”

      in the way of false bullshit, plastic, cement, wood? Really depressing, but been coming up for several years. ... My front top
      are going going gone. Upper register is not available anymore, and have gone with much softer reeds. Really sucks. Thinking
      of moving to Nor-Cal and living off the land Rambo-style and hunting wild bark and ferns, maybe dyno-mite some fish and
      build me a bunker.”

     Joe Morris: “Sometimes folks lose teeth. Get some new ones and get busy playing. You’ll get used to ’em in no time.
      By the way, we are not kids anymore. Shit is gonna fall off. But we can play like kids! Let’s play! ...
      Try hard not to punish yourself. You survived really tough medical stuff. Thankfully you’re still here losing your teeth.
      They can be replaced. You could never be replaced.”
      Marco: “Really feel like throwing in the towel. But I am figuring it out, softer reeds, playing on the side of my mouth,
      sounding like shit. ... I was so happy with the way I was doing this past year down in the atelier. I made many really great
      break-thrus even tho they wern’t quite coming out in performance yet. But what I was doing-down under I felt good about.
      Now have to relean the horn. This shit just took a major [step] in destroying my teeth in the last two weeks after playing
      solo in Prague where it was so hot and sweaty that the horn slipped and jammed my tooth side ways.”

     Marco to RL, August 3, 2014, 11:18am: I had all of mine seven years ago when I started what for all intent and purpose
      was 13 months chemo. Have lost more than half because of the treatment which didn’t work and now I am about to lose
      two of the last five front-upper, and can’t play the horn anymore. Real fucking drag. ... After 38 years I just started to learn
      how to play the goddamn piece of metal. ... I love playing the piano but I will never be a piano player.”

      even cover their travel. Damn, the shit just becomes boring.
      I stay home and play with and by myself. Really insulting at this point in my life, at my age and with my experience of what
      I have done. Or maybe I am just not worth it and should be treated this way. ...
      Are you going to pay me the proper amount or not? If not, then do it in respect and make things clear. I am not going to,
      in any way, going to bend over and take it in the ass and smile. I ask for at least some respect and to not be screwed. ...

Ciao Vienna!!

After 10½ years here in Vienna doing everything correct and by the book and
being legal with an Artist Visa, I screwed up this past year due to severe illness
and much time in hospital, my visa long expired, and I just found that I will not
be let back into the EU for a minimum six months. So I make a quick three-day
clean and throw away everything and hit the airport to San Francisco tomorrow
morning.
Many thanks to all the good friends here, you helped me in so many ways. Aladin
Al-Serori of Ce Leste who let me use the Keller all these years and pratice as loud
as I wanted all day long. Anton Blattnig who gave a place to stay for three months
free when I first arrived. Didi Kern and Philipp Quehenberger who got me going
with local shows and an introduction to the great Austrian artist Franz West. And
the Saint, Hans Falb of Jazzgalerie Nickelsdorf. It's been good in so many ways,
but time is up and of the essence. Dankeschon Wien!

Estoy muy muy enojado con mi “senor de los Tugurios.” [I am very very angry with my “lord of the Slums.”] Now in the next
few hours I have to make the decision to pay the next month rent (because the first week free of rent when the room was still
full of shit, was false) and then also pay for August as I am in California for three weeks. Or do I just pay for the next three
weeks, go to California and then come back and stay at the hostel youth for double the price? Already been there done that.
Soy 15 anos mayor que el [I am 15 years older than him] and I see right thru his shit.
—Marco, June 21, 2015


Hey Hey Yo ja.
So it is fixed, I am out of my nice place run by a dishonest slumlord, senor de Los Tugurios the 11th of July. Couple nights by
the Cano brothers and then California for three weeks. When I come back the 7th of August, I need a place to live. Great if I can
find something before I split.
Coming back with my sweetheart Daniela and probably have to stay at a hostile youth joint for 10 days if I have nothing set
up first. After which if nothing available I don't mind sleeping in the park. Regardless of what the news says, this joint is much
safer than NYC in the late ’70s-’80s when I was homeless numerous times sleeping in the park, rooftops and shelters.
Would rather not tho.


“mmmmm... Couple of hours laying on the rooftop terrace in the midday summer solstice Aztec sun, I am calmer and healthier.
Still feel like breaking the mofeaux’s kneecaps, but I will take a cold shower instead.”
—Marco, June 21, 2015


Wow, I am really, still from what can only be called post-traumatic stress from the way I had to leave Vienna on such short
notice and abandon 10½ years of my life, arrive in the Bay area no money, no job, no place to live, and my mother made it
very clear I was not welcome. Somehow ended up in a 3rd-world country, unless of course you are a white Euro-Spaniard.
The racism, classism, and corruption here is unbelievable.
How the hell I ended up here I don’t know, but I am in tears.
Post-traumatic stress. Really upset.

     Marco, November 30, 2015:
      (posting a quote from David Ackert of The Los Angeles Times)
      “Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the
      face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year
      than most people do in a lifetime.
      Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance
      lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should
      get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again.
      Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have
      dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream.
      With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically,
      risking criticism and judgment.
      With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their
      age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life —the car, the
      family, the house, the nest egg.
      Why? Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire
      lives to a moment—to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that
      interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul.
      Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal
      moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched
      another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and
      perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know
      that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.”

     Marco: “I would add: sacrificing our mental and physical health,
      succumbing to various vices and addictions, losing friendships and
      destroying relationships. I spent many times over the years being
      homeless in NYC. sleeping in the park, on rooftops. Early winter ’95
      I lived two months in a NYC shelter, playing in the subway to get a few
      dollars for food.
      Most of my friends/colleagues going back 35 years never lived to the
      age I am now—Jim Pepper, Don Cherry, Earl Cross, C Sharpe, Jimmy
      Lyons, Raphé Malik, Glenn Spearman—and the list goes on.”

MARCO ENEIDI, 1956-2016 (obituary written by Michael Ehlers)

“The eremite family grieves the death of Marco Eneidi. Marco passed away 24 May in Pleasanton, CA. A consummate
and uncompromising free jazz alto saxophonist, Marco was an authentic heir to the legacies of his friend Glenn Spearman
and his primary artistic role model Jimmy Lyons. Marco played hard, he rode hard, and he earned it. Pre-deceased by his
jazz family of Denis Charles, Raphe Malik, Jim Pepper, and Spearman, among others, Marco will live on through his
brilliant music. his body of work, on his own Botticelli imprint, and on eremite, rates right up there with the strongest
free jazz of its era. Condolences to his son Nicco and to all the musicians who made the journey with him.”


Timothy Orr: May 25, 2016: “In 2004 before Marco Eneidi left Oakland for Europe there was a short-lived quartet with
Joshua Allen and Damon Smith that performed at the 8th Street Studio and the Oakland Metro for the last Jazz in Flight
show. The usual hang was at Geo. Kayes, where the long discussions were illuminating and often hysterical, especially
when bartender Dave Biddle was involved. Those were exciting times for me and I learned a lot in just a few weeks from
all of these incredible musicians. The next time with Marco wasn't until 2007 at 21 Grand with his Orchestra, which was
another vast learning experience. Thank you Marco for your generous spirit, infinite knowledge, and adventurous sound.

Matt Weston, May 25, 2016: “When I was a student at Bennington, Marco would frequently come up to campus for a
few days at a time to sit in with Bill Dixon and Arthur Brooks’ ensemble classes. He would also perform in the cafe on
campus—one performance that made a huge impact on me was of his group with Jackson Krall, Larry Roland, and
William Parker.
Marco had an absolutely massive sound—saying it filled the room doesn’t do it justice. It was incredibly broad and deep,
but also extremely sensitive to, and focused on, the dynamics of the physical space.
One night after Bill’s class, Marco and I stuck around to play duets. I was ill-prepared; after about 15 minutes my hands
started cramping up, and I had to stop for a bit. I naively assumed Marco would stop and wait for me to catch up. He kept
barreling ahead, making up for the lack of a drummer by altering his phrasing just slightly enough to suggest, without
overtly telling me, what to play.
About a year later, I was walking to the carriage barn one morning and I heard these incredible sounds that I couldn’t place.
It was not uncommon to hear Marco practicing in one of the smaller rooms in the carriage barn, where he could best hear
himself, but this sounded different. As I got closer, I recognized Marco’s sharp, pointed phrasing but it was entirely made
up of multiphonics. I was floored. Instead of practicing that morning, I just sat and listened to him.
That night, we played duets again, and it was one of those situations where it felt like time stopped. It remains one of my
fondest musical memories.
Marco was an incredibly gifted and committed musician, and a very generous person. Rest In Power, Marco.”

James Haygood, May 25, 2016: “Lost a childhood friend last night, Marco Eneidi, on the left [See photo, 1974]. Then me,
Roger Corman, and John E. Adams back in our high school days. Our paths all led in different directions but FB allowed us
to stay in touch—a ton of memories stored up from those years. Marco lived down the street from me, we knew each other
since we were maybe five or six, playing kick the can and running wild ’til after dark back when that’s what kids did. This
shot is at the end of our street back in Livermore as we all got into music, in a eucalyptus grove the led into the country—
endless room to roam, all built up now.
Marco chose the toughest path, fiercely independent, chasing a free jazz path that took him all over the world, freezing in
NYC storefronts he’d squat in in the ’80s, playing clubs with jazz greats, to Austria and then Mexico and beyond, wherever
there was a place to play. But I’ll remember our time as kids at that transitional time in our country, changes playing out that
continue today. While we lived in an old (for California) cow town (established as a town in the 1870s), Marco and Roger’s
dads both were physicists at the Livermore Lab. An odd mix for a small town, but kind of a microcosm of America in
transition in the ’70s. Adios, Marco... —in Livermore, CA.”

Eric Arn, May 25, 2016: “Saw the sad news at breakfast, and have been thinking all day what I could possibly say about
Marco Eneidi. I don’t have to say anything about what a constantly inventive force of nature he was on the horn. You can
hear that in every recording. What I need to say is that I remain amazed that a colossus of his ability and experience would
take the time to be such a good teacher, role model (in some ways), and above all friend to me for nine years, especially
when I needed it most. For all that time, no matter how tired, broke, sick, or discouraged he felt, he was there in the Celeste
Keller every Monday night organizing the chaos into rare beauty, throwing out the rowdy drunks, and blowing up a storm.
I was there every time I could be, and I always came away having learned something. I wouldn’t be nearly the player or
the person I am today if I hadn’t met him, and he is gone far too soon. Goodbye marco.”

RL, May 25, 2016: “One of the great voices on alto is gone. Love me some Marco.
We had spoken recently about another Erie gig, and I had promised to make him another pan of vegetarian lasagna.
What a crazy, unbridled, beautiful spirit!!!”

Peter Breslin posting a Marco quote, May 25, 2016: “Yeah, in America the artists, we’re beneath the underdog, we’re
below the ground, you know there’s no support for us. And the jazz world is like a low thing and the avant-garde, the new
music, is below that. Then for us who’re not famous we’re even beneath that, so we’re underground, but we’re still here,
we’re still doing it. And by God we still are there in people’s faces and when we go out to play we play and we’re there,
we play.” —Marco Eneidi

Cortazar Mezmoti, June 4, 2016: “I still cannot believe that you are gone Marco?
Doesn't make any sense!!! There is a void. You had a voice and what a voice it was, fierce and agile but also lithe and
graceful,calming the storms whose whorls you spur, it was like angels and demons fighting over humanity’s soul the milk
of the cosmos spilling from the wound of living or at least the billion attempts at it, scars and all wrought from swimming
in shit to get at it, having to eat shit, (and still played good music!) notes wrung like the necks of birds with the gentle
strangulation of the peace seeking Native who is not a trophy man hunter for the sport, some will play because they can
(and there will be plenty of interested parties filing in to see them) and some must play (sound on, survival=struggle) in
order to survive (triumph of the spirit, inherent in the Sound). It is their service to humanity, but it comes with a price,
and it is much too heavy for most to bear and even support, but the weight and sheer greatness of it is sometimes too much
for that one soul who is expressing it, and in trying, cannot endure it—such is the power and heaviness of a gift of this
nature—and has to get some rest.
I love Marco, his music is a powerful force that has nourished my soul and tingled my being time and time again, and I am
grateful to the people that produced and released the music he was involved with and the people he collaborated with.
Matter can be destroyed.
People can take other people for granted and brush them off.
People can close their hearts to truth and beauty.
But Energy is forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And Marco had an infinite supply of that.
Just listen to his lines on the saxophone, those lines are carved out of the rock of an infinite number of things, peoples and
places and their insides, as well as his own, the depth and breadth contained in the sounds’ plasma, together with all the
emotions and hysteria delineated in phrases and crazy runs, his humanity and Life force in a vortex of lines spun and
woven into a million billion shapes and then spat out like a sacred hymn or graffiti offering, can you dig?
Listening to him play is like getting fed, and the food is so good that your soul absorbs it but your heart fights so hard and
finally wins it, and keeps it locked up in its chambers and every once in a while lets your mind play with it and your body
dance to it.
Get the recordings. It’s never too late. We can learn from the past masters of an art that is unconditionally alive and fucking
timeless and life-affirming.”

Joe Morris, May 25, 2016: “Rest in Peace Marco Eneidi. Soul Brother. Beautiful artist, sweet friend.”

Roger Corman, May 25, 2016: “Marco was one of my oldest and dearest friends. We studied music together in high school
and college, roomed together, and he taught me so much about jazz. My first professional gigs were with him: we were the
Roger and Marc Duo. His dedication to his instrument has been a source of inspiration throughout my life. I’ve never known
anyone who put more effort into their playing—when we were at Sonoma State he would practice 12 hours a day, and live in
the practice rooms and music professors offices.
I love him and will greatly miss him. My thoughts go out to all his family and loved ones.”

John Ingle, June 7, 2016, (posted by Mat Walerian): “I’ve been struggling to write something appropriate and meaningful
about my friend Marco Eneidi’s passing. Time keeps moving and I feel worse and worse for my silence.
Marco was a brilliant musician who stayed true to his art and vision. I saw Marco last summer in San Francisco and was
looking forward to visiting him in Mexico sometime. He was so happy with his girlfriend Daniela and his garden in Mexico.
I had stayed with him in Vienna a few years ago, and we hung out and played music every day for a couple of weeks. He was
so excited about music, he said, ‘John, this is so fun. I’m really getting somewhere.... I just hope to have as much time as
possible to make this music.’ Although he knew his time was limited, every day he was woodshedding, and playing piano, too.
He ran this fantastic series at the Celeste, his Monday night improv sessions. He was a funny guy, always mixing up players
in unusual groupings, getting odd bed-fellows to make music together. Always pushing and probing. And his sound on alto:
tart, powerful, sweet, soaring.. His articulation was like none other—except maybe his mentor Jimmy Lyons. His phrases
could be like Mohammed Ali’s jabs—pop, pop, pop! He was a dancer.
I remember playing an opening set of Glen Spearman’s music on a festival that Marco organized in Oakland at 21 Grand,
when Marco played circles around Peter Brötzmann. Of Course Brötzmann is famous and a big and powerful bear of a
player, but Marco was playing the most amazing lines behind him—harmonically daring, inventive, and sophisticated.
Maybe some of you out there heard Marco play a rare solo set at Mills around 2000 or so. Still the best thing I ever heard
him do, among so many brilliant sets. We were roommates at the time near Mills. I remember Nicco coming to live there.
Marco had a tough guy persona that he like to say came from being a short guy and from hanging out in NY in the ’80s
with Dennis Charles, Sonny Murray, and other tough guy free jazz folks, but really Marco was a gentle and loving soul.
He loved his family. He said outrageous shit sometimes, and was bitter about his lack of wider recognition, which led him
to bash the ‘cocktail jazz’ set and sometimes lose it with some politically incorrect ranting, but, he mostly channeled this
through his horn and with his music.
Marco never compromised. He was true to his muse, and never faltered. I wish that I had heard him with his Mexican group.
I miss hearing him with Donald Robinson, Lisle Ellis, Panagiotis Peter Valsamis, Spirit, Damon Smith, Vijay [Anderson],
Lisa Mezzacappa, the late Glen Spearman, Matthew Goodheart, Joshua Allen, plus many other bay area treasures.
I loved meeting and playing with many of his colleagues and friends in Vienna: Didi Kern, Phillip [Quehenberger], Sylvia
Bruckner (who I recorded with while visiting Marco, at Christoph Amann’s great studio), Eric Arn, etc.—too many friends
and musicians to name. ...
Marco is gone, but his spirit, influence, and music live on. rest in peace my good friend. I love you, too.”

Daniela Eneidi Pahle, May 25, 2016: “Thank you all so much for sending me your energie, and taking care, I was blessed
to be together with a beautiful soul, love to Marco on his new way, and love to his family too. ♥”

8:00pm, Outpost 186, Cambridge, MA

Nicco Eneidi is with Marco Eneidi in Cerro Prieto, Baja California, Mexico. November 18, 2016: Rode down Mexico today and found a volcano outside of Mexicali. Took a wrong turn and ended up riding a road into pure sand, finally found my way back and hiked up to the top to spread some of my father’s ashes in the caldera and drink a warm beer. I think Marco woulda got a kick out of knowing that some day when this volcano blows he'll play a small part in mass destruction. Miss you brujo!
