The uniquely talented members of the Marcus Roberts trio create a musical fusion that wouldn't be possible with any other
musicians. The group's creator, Marcus Roberts has a laundry list of accomplishments including awards from Jazz at Lincoln
Center, Chamber Music America and most recently from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for a piano concerto his composed that
will premiere soon. And while his career is astonishing, Roberts doesn't want to hog the spotlight. He has an immense passion
for helping young musicians hone their skills, which is evident in the relationship he has with the other two members of the
group. Rodney Jordan, the trio's newest member, became friends with Marcus Roberts when they were both teaching music at Florida
State University. He too is a man of many musical accomplishments, and Roberts recognized his incomparable talent. The last
member of the group, is Jason Marsalis, whom Roberts snatched up when he was only 17-years-old. With a musical genius that
is unsurpassed by any musician his age, he has become an asset to the trio and Robert's protégé. There's nothing run-of-the-mill
about these jazz musicians. They defy convention and genre. Don't miss seeing this amazing group in person! Buy your concert tickets from StubHub, and prepare for an unforgettable
The Marcus Roberts trio was founded in 1995, and has become known for their unconventional, futuristic sound that is hard
to define. Their style is strong rhythmically, with a crisp melody and dynamic contrast. They have created a new approach
to old-world jazz, combing the flavors and distinct sounds of jazz legends like Cole Porter and combine them with the sounds
of more modern rhythm and blues. Robert's vision for the trio grew out of the selection of drummer Jason Marsalis who joined
the trio when he was just 17. When he added musical genius, bassist Rodney Jordan, Roberts knew he had something special.
While it would be natural for Roberts to take the lead on most of their performances and recorded tracks because he plays
the piano-the instrument that is usually central to jazz music-he makes sure that each member's musical talents are put on
display during every performance. So, you won't only get to hear the amazing Marcus Roberts tickle the ivories, but you will
get the chance to hear the dynamic beats of the astounding Jason Marsalis and the rhythmic rapture of bassist Rodney Jordan.
Because of this group approach to performing, concert goers feel as though they are listening to more than just three musicians.
