His debut album, "Gateway To The Galaxy," is hot off the press and features musical luminaries such as Bill Evans (sax, Miles Davis), Arthur Barrow (bass, Frank Zappa), Kris Myers (drums, Umphrey's McGee) and Joel Cummins (keys, Umphrey's McGee).

Rezak is the Lead guitarist and original member of Chicago-based, electronic super-group, Digital Tape Machine which features members of Umphreys McGee as well. Marcus' diversity in musical styles has earned him renown as a masterful jazz improviser and the "art of the sit in."
