Jazz legend Wynton Marsalis has hailed Marcus Roberts as “the genius of modern piano.”
Roberts amazing story has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Charlie Rose, Tavis Smiley, NPR and more.
The Marcus Roberts Trio is known for its virtuosic style and entirely new approach to jazz trio performance. While most jazz trios have the piano front and center, all members of the Marcus Roberts Trio share equally in shaping the direction of the music by changing its tempo, mood, texture, or form at any time. And they do this with lightning quick musical reflexes and creative imaginations. The trio is known for having almost telepathic communication on the stage. And more than a few concert goers have been heard to say that it sounds like a lot more than three people up there on the stage!
