But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Marlina Teich Quartet
which way west? Sunday concert series

Marlina Teich, guitar and vocals
Madaline Duran, tenor sax
Richard Saunders, bass
John Fisher, drums

No cover charge; donations requested – that’s how we pay the musicians!

Originally from New York City via birthplace, Bayonne, New Jersey, Marlina plays solo, duo and combo, with her regular quartet consisting of Marlina on guitar, Richard Saunders on bass, John Fisher on drums, and either a horn or piano — in this case, with her long-time associate, the wonderful tenor sax player Madaline Duran.

Marlina has performed and/or recorded with countless great musicians including Jules Broussard, Danny Armstrong, Mel Martin, Richie Cole, Junius Simmons, Jeff Chambers, Eddie Marshall, Donald “Duck” Bailey, Si Perkoff, Eddie Henderson, Ylonda Nichols, Juanita Ellington, and Dave Black, drummer for Duke Ellington.  She has also taught jazz ensembles and jazz and blues guitar at San Quentin Prison, and of course teaches privately and in group settings. Possessing a California Teaching Credential, she has appeared twice in the book “Who’s Who of American Teachers.”  She is also featured in Scott Yanow’s book, “The Great Jazz Guitarists: The Ultimate Guide.”
