Enigmatic guitarist Marc Ribot has released six very diverse solo guitar albums (including “John Zorn’s Book of Heads”, “Solo Guitar Works of Frantz Casseus”, “Saints”, “Don’t Blame Me”, “Exercises in Futility”) and his latest release, “Silent Movies” (Pi Recording 2010) has been described as a “down-in-mouth-near master piece” by the Village Voice and has landed on several Best of 2010 lists including the LA Times and critical praise across the board.
His live solo performances are unpredictable events which may draw on all of these or none, creating a sonic matrix of memory, free improvisation, zeitgeist, extra-terrestrial radio signals, and much more…always leaving the listener on the edge of their seats.

“…he can sit down with just his guitar and simultaneously confound you with technique, beauty, and surprise.” – John Garratt and Will Layman, PopMatters Picks: The Best Music of 2010


Born in Newmark, New Jersey, in 1954, Marc Ribot started playing very young in several bands, while taking classical guitar lessons from Haitian composer Frantz Casseus. In 1978 he moved to New York, where he played for various musicians including Wilson Pickett and, as a member Realtones, for Carla Thomas, Rufus Thomas and Solomon Burke.
In 1984 he joined the Lounge Lizards and his popularity grows to the the point that Elvis Costello, Marianne Faithfull and – above all – Tom Waits Mario call him to work with them.
