Trumpeter, composer, multi instrumentalist, band leader, master musician and regular on the HBO series Tremé,
Mario first developed his chops in his hometown Chicago, listening and playing at Fred Anderson’s legendary Velvet Lounge. Often compared to the genius of Miles Davis and leadership and insight of Art Blakely, Mario fuses the Art of Jazz music with the soul and freedom of his current home and birth place of the music, New Orleans. Mario Abney’s Sextet embody the spirit of New Orleans and instrumental excellence.
Mario Abney has shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis, Donald Harrison, Cyril Neville, Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Nicholas Payton, and many others. Mario is a nationally recognized musician and independent recording artist and can be seen live in New Orleans and various other venues around the nation.
