  • One of the most sought after session horn players on saxophone, flute and clarinet, solo artist, arranger and composer Lou Marini has electrified audiences with his "sultry, seductive and singular" sounds in jazz, rock, blues, classical music, and film and TV shows and specials. He has been a member of Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Saturday Night Live Band, The Blue Brothers Band and his credits include hundreds of albums, many of which have gone platinum. He has recorded with such luminaries as Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Lou Reed and Frank Zappa, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, The Band and Steely Dan to name just a few. Lou is an original member of The Blues Brothers since their first appearances on Saturday night Live and has appeared in both movies and on all of their recordings and tours.
