MARCO ENEIDI, 1956>2016

the eremite family grieves the death of marco eneidi. marco passed away 24 may in pleasanton, CA. a consummate & uncompromising free jazz alto saxophonist, marco was an authentic heir to the legacies of his friend glenn spearman & his primary artistic role model jimmy lyons. marco played hard, he rode hard, & he earned it. pre-deceased by his jazz family of denis charles, raphe malik, jim pepper, & spearman, among others, marco will live on through his brilliant music. his body of work, on his own botticelli imprint, & on eremite, rates right up there with the strongest free jazz of its era. condolences to his son nikko & to all the musicians who made the journey with him. 

jason 'stanley' zappa's 2004 film on marco tells it well...
