    What do Kenny G., En Vogue, Toni Braxton, George Clinton, George Benson, Brandy, Maurice White and Tower of Power all have in common? All have worked with Marlon “The Magician” McClain, a guitarist, producer and arranger with a history as one of R&B’s best. Marlon was first known as part of the 1970s R&B band Pleasure (remember “Glide”?) and he has been making great music with others ever since.

    Marlon is now putting his name on the front of the album for the first time in a long time, with his new disc, TBC. Written and produced by Marlon, and featuring performances by Al Turner (bass), Soul Persona (drum programming, keys), Thomas McElroy (keys, percussion), Jeff Lorber (keys), Ken Sato (drum programming), and Curtis Salgado (harmonica), the nine-track album doesn’t miss a beat.
