Groove – Episode #7: Mark Egan

Mark Egan

Mark Egan has a very specific sound. Whether it’s from co-founding the jazz fusion band, Elements, or being a part of the Pat Metheny Group… or from the Gil Evans Orchestra to his work with Sting, Joan Osborne, Cyndi Lauper or Art Garfunkel. The smooth, fretless electric bass sound is unmistakably his.

Egan spent a significant amount of time honing his musical skills in Florida. He studied at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, and also spent time hanging out with Jaco Pastorius. He’s not just a bass player, but a passionate musician who – to this day – is thinking about newer ways to deliver a deeper tapestry of sound with his instrument.
