Marty Morell Biography (Wikipedia)

Marty Morell (born February 25, 1944) is a drummer, percussionist, vibraphonist and producer who played with the Bill Evans Trio for seven years - longer than any other drummer. Morell attended the Manhattan School of Music and studied mallets with Morris Goldberg, and tympani with Saul Goodman at the Juilliard School of Music. Prior to joining Bill Evans, he worked and/or recorded with the Al Cohn-Zoot Sims Quintet, Henry "Red" Allen, Gary McFarland, Steve Kuhn and Gábor Szabó.

Morell recorded prolifically and toured the world with pianist Bill Evans and bassist Eddie Gómez from late 1968 through 1974. Evans biographer Peter Pettinger, calling Morell "an unsung stalwart of piano trio history", wrote:

After leaving the trio, Marty settled in Toronto, Canada where he became a highly sought after studio drummer and percussionist. He fronted his own bands as a drummer and also worked as a vibist and pianist with his Latin band and played congas with the 1970s funk-jazz band Ravin'. Morell has played on numerous jingles, films, and has worked and recorded with many jazz artists such as Don Sebesky, Stan Getz, Kenny Wheeler, Claus Ogerman, and Rob McConnell & the Boss Brass.
