"Blue" Lou Marini

Music Arranger/Saxophone

Lou Marini is a legend. Most know him from his work in "The Blues Brothers" movies where he played the part of “Blue Lou.” Lou was an original member of the Saturday Night Live band. We all remember his saxophone solos which followed the announcement, “Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night!”

Lou Marini is one of the greatest saxophone players in the world. He’s also an excellent music arranger. When we have a big project that calls for brass we bring in Lou to write the horn parts and play the saxophone.

Lou travels the world playing and teaching. He’s equally at home in Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater or the jazz clubs of New York. Lou has worked with everyone from James Taylor to James Brown.
