Brilliant pianist MARCUS ROBERTS and his trio have been breaking musical ground for nearly 20 years, and each outing is packed with rich and soulful music.He’s a virtuoso with an encyclopedic knowledge of jazz history, an enormous collaborative spirit, and a disarming warmth and modesty—a unique combination that has earned him a reputation as one of the jazz piano greats of our time.
Roberts joined Wynton Marsalis’ band when he was 21, and just a few years later became the Director of the famed Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Currently a professor at Florida State University, Roberts has toured the world with his improvised version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody on Blue, and is the leader on two dozen recordings, including his most recent Trio Crescent: Celebrating Coltrane.We are thrilled to bring this famed jazz icon to our stage!
