Fernando Roman (Motifvation) While most musicians opt to mass produce unoriginal/mainstream albums - the passion project: Times Remembered, with 9 complex songs - aims to be different. The instrumental album evokes nostalgia for a time where music wasn’t the industry it is today. With only one feature, this album is entirely Marcus D, and in my opinion, his current magnum opus.This album is refreshing/evocative/and classy. Hopefully music will revert back to its original state, but until then, those are now times remembered Favorite track: This Thing of Ours.

"Consisting exclusively of jazz samples from the early-to-mid 1900s, Marcus D returns to his roots with Times Remembered. An obvious homage to Bill Evans' acclaimed "Time Remembered", Marcus D uses sultry piano loops behind signature drum breaks layered with horn and string sections that would make Count Basie and Duke Ellington proud. In an era where Bill Evans and Chet Baker samples have become Spotify playlist fodder for "lo-fi" beatmakers, Marcus D forgoes the easy formula of finger-drumming over well-known jazz samples and seeks to create something unique and full of life; something familiar, but timeless. Times Remembered is an ode to the golden age of jazz, and the heartache, sacrifice, and artistry that pervaded the genre. Times Remembered taps into that moment in time and modernizes it beautifully." - Rayne Sakaguchi (Tokyo Jazz Note)
