Marcus Roberts Trio
6:30pm – Q&A with Marcus Roberts
7:30pm – Concert
Marcus Roberts is known around the world for his creative, virtuosic, and powerful jazz piano style. Not only is he a man set apart in his genre due to his exceptional talent, but also for the challenges that he’s had to overcome due to his childhood blindness.
A man who has rare insight into the soul of American music, Marcus Roberts is a fierce piano player as well as gifted composer. These talents he combines with the skill of Rodney Jordan on bass and drummer Jason Marsalis to create a group that redefines the typical jazz trio, tackling classic jazz standards with fresh style and musical ingenuity. Founded in 1995, the group is going strong
after 15 years, defining themselves through enormous individual talent to create a powerfully rhythmic group sound. The Marcus Roberts Trio believes in “letting the music take over” which they do to impressive effect because of their quick musical reflexes, creative imaginations, and intuitive way of communicating on stage.
