“A remarkable musician.” (Jazz Times) “Roberts individualizes his sound by utilizing orchestral devices … In the course of a single piece, he constantly modulates grooves, tempos and keys, plays separate time signatures with the right hand and the left, and, as he puts it, ‘flips around the roles of the piano, bass and drums by giving everyone an equal opportunity to develop the concepts and themes, to change the form, to get us where we’re getting ready to go’.” (JAZZIZ) At this concert, you will first hear Roberts perform Jelly Roll Morton, Monk, Ellington, and Gershwin on solo piano. In the second half of the concert, he performs music by Coltrane with his trio, featuring Rodney Jordan on bass and Jason Marsalis on drums.
