Listen to the Genesis
Mark Berman's debut recording of The Genesis Project received widespread acclaim from broadcasters, musicians and the jazz press. Written based on the allegory of the seven days of Creation, this jazz, R & B, and funk composition evokes themes of ecology, human rights and peace.
The CD was officially released with a full performance to a capacity audience on October 30, 2007 at Birdland in New York City.
The work features some of the most prominent musicians in New York. According to Birdland, "The music weaves gracefully through many styles -- straight-ahead jazz to Samba, R&B, Gospel, Hip-Hop and Rock. The band expertly navigates these styles with great grooves and sensitivity. It's a thrilling musical ride."
Berman was interviewed around the world at the time of the album's release (he was a featured guest on Voice of America radio) and received international recognition as a jazz artist. His music continues to be broadcast on radio stations, networks and syndicated programming both in the US and abroad.
