Sherrie Maricle
Sherrie Maricle  Biography
 GMN Recordings
 Buy CDs

Applying the multi-rhythmic approach of her Jazz drumming to her day to day life, Sherrie Maricle manages to keep her multiple activities in perfect order. A respected arranger and composer in both the Jazz and Classical idioms, she also performs with Skitch Henderson and the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, and on tours all over the world. Her orchestra piece 'Touch of the Earth' was premiered by the Pops as well.

As an educator, Ms. Maricle is the director of Percussion Studies at New York University, where she recently received her doctoral degree in Jazz Performance and Composition. In addition, she is the New York State President of the International Association of Jazz Educators and the New York Pops Education Coordinator for the five boroughs of New York City.

A busy freelance musician who performs regularly with the New Jersey Symphony, Maurice Hines, the Oliver Jones Trio and in various Broadway pit bands, she’s also worked with Jazz greats Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton, among others.

Born in Buffalo, New York, Ms. Maricle began her commitment to Jazz drumming after being "mesmerized by Buddy Rich and his Killer Force Orchestra." As an undergraduate at the State University of New York at Binghamton, she was already performing in a variety of musical situations from Jazz to symphonic to Broadway.

Her longtime desire to lead her own big band was fulfilled with the creation of Diva in 1993, a 14-piece all female band that has toured the world, performing at festivals, concert halls and on cruises, as has her small group Five Play, which performed most recently at the Kennedy Center’s Fifth Annual Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival.
