Bio

In 1981, in Philadelphia, Scott Marvill assembled a group of musicians eager to play the music they enjoyed. Jazz. They soon discovered a certain "chemistry" and musical affinity that led to their formation of "Freeport". After much song selection, the group would flourish playing for a decade together. Some of the highlights were recording and performing with Tower Of Power, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Special EFX, and Grover Washington Jr. to name a few.

Then Scott moved to North Carolina. He decided to continue the band. Taking the opportunity to bring the New York/Philadelphia jazz feel to the South he assembled players and instrumentation that would provide a unique sound. Doing this has created a very full and flexible sound allowing Freeport to play all types of jazz. This is evident by the numerous instruments on stage including four keyboards, multiple saxes (Alto, Tenor, Soprano), flute, drums, and basses.

They take today's and yesterday's jazz making it their songs veering from the typical musical roads taken by other jazz groups. From their audiences reaction they seem to be on the right track receiving a very positive reaction.

Freeport offers a combination of Smooth Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, and Jazz Standards. Freeport consists of Steve Bowers on saxes, flute, keyboards, Malik Graham on keyboards, Alex Norman on drums, and Scott Marvill on basses.
