Marc Ribot

Marc Ribot (born 1954) is an American guitarist, composer and occasional singer from Newark, New Jersey.

Ribot has performed and recorded with Tom Waits, The Lounge Lizards and Elvis Costello, among dozens of others.

Ribot's playing and compositions draw on such diverse musical genres as soul, jazz, funk, traditional cuban music and no wave. His biting style is unique and easily recognizable, described by critic Nick Renshaw as "the angular, discordant, aggressive guitars licks [that] have become Marc's trademark."
