Biography

There are several artists by the name of John Marshall.

1. John Stanley Marshall, better known as John Marshall, born 28 August, 1941 in Isleworth, Middlesex, is an English drummer.
John Stanley Marshall was born in London, England. Honours degree in psychology at Reading University. Began playing at school and became seriously involved with music at university. Private lessons with several teachers, including Allan Ganley and Philly Joe Jones. After free-lancing on the London jazz scene, his first regular engagement was with Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated in 1964. Then with the Graham Collier Sextet, 1965-70, during which time he also played with John Surman, John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Mike Westbrook, Graham Bond Organization, Joe Harriott, Indo-Jazz Fusions, Keith Tippett’s Sextet and Centipede, Alan Skidmore and others.

In September 1969 he was a founder member of Nucleus, which won first prize at the Montreux Festival the following year and played the Newport Festival and the Village Gate in New York. Marshall played on the first three Nucleus albums, but he rejoined the band in 1982 for a much longer stint, appearing on two further albums in the 1980s. Also in the early 1970s he became a regular member of the Mike Gibbs Orchestra.

In the summer of 1971 Marshall left Nucleus to join the Jack Bruce Band, and in January 1972 joined Soft Machine, eventually becoming, later in the decade, co-leader with Karl Jenkins.
