Host

When legendary vocalist Betty Carter asked saxophonist Mark Shim to join her band for a three month world tour in 1995, he became the first and only saxophonist that the iconic singer would ever utilize for an overseas tour. Remarkably, Shim was only 21 years of age at the time. Since that auspicious debut, Mark Shim has made an impact on the musical world with his unique brand of creativity and inventiveness.

Over the course of his 25-year career, Shim has recorded three albums for the prestigious Blue Note label, including the critically acclaimed Turbulent Flow. He has also had the honor of touring with the great Elvin Jones in the last incarnation of his “Elvin Jones Jazz Machine” band, as well with many other distinguished and influential artists, including Terence Blanchard, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Vijay Iyer.

Born in Jamaica, Shim currently resides in New York, and is a highly sought-after educator and
performer.
