Juno Award-winning Hungarian-Canadian pianist and the RCM’s inaugural Jazz Artist in Residence, Robi Botos, takes us on a trip through Roma-inspired jazz piano with the help of some special guests.
Protégé of Canadian jazz legend Oscar Peterson, Robi blends bebop, swing, and modern jazz with eastern European folk music and classical music. His dynamic live performances and distinctive sound have earned him praise from Branford Marsalis, Chaka Khan, Al Jarreau, and many more. Said the late organist, trumpeter, and pianist Joey DeFrancesco: “Robi is one of the most swingin’, soulful, funky, world-class players I’ve ever heard, and he has a technique like you can’t believe.”
Botos will be joined by Joanna Majoko (vocals), Mike Downes (bass), Larnell Lewis (drums), and more exciting musicians to be announced.
