Marcus Roberts Trio Tour Schedule

Since 1995 the Marcus Roberts Trio has been a fixture in the jazz scene, presenting some of the most interesting and forward-thinking music of the genre.

If you have yet to catch a performance by these jazz superstars, now is the time to get on top of it by taking a look at some of their most exciting upcoming shows.

Everyone knows that Nashville, Tennessee is one of the best places in the world for live music and this could not be more true than on New Year's Eve. On December 31, 2013 the Marcus Roberts Trio will be ringing in the New Year at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville along with thousands of their most loyal fans.

Even if you can't make the New Year's Eve show, there will be plenty of opportunities to see the Marcus Roberts Trio while they are on tour in 2014.


About the Band

The Marcus Roberts Trio is made up of three incredibly talented jazz musicians, Marcus Roberts, Jason Marsalis, and Rodney Jordan. Marcus Roberts started the band and plays piano, but each member of the band has the opportunity to step into the spotlight, whether it is Marcus, Rodney Jordan on the bass, or Jason Marsalis on the drums. Allowing each band member to contribute to the texture and tone of every piece they perform allows for a complex sound which makes the audience feel like there are more than just three performers making the sound. At the moment Marcus Roberts is focused on making the band into the best trio in jazz but he is also exploring the idea of expanding into a septet or octet sometime in the future to add even more to their already amazing sound. As it is, the Marcus Roberts Trio has a sound and style that is hard to adequately pin down and transcends genre allowing for a broad appeal to much more than just hard core jazz fans.


Breakthrough

In the nearly twenty years of their existence the Marcus Roberts Trio has had plenty of success and drawn the admiration of music critics, jazz lovers, and fellow musicians but it was really the release of their album New Orleans Meets Harlem that made an unforgettable mark on the music world and so far has bee their most memorable work. December 5, 2012 saw the release of Deep in the Shed which was actually a reworking and rerecording of a previous work from 1989 of the same name. The newer version has a much warmer and deeper sound in addition to being available for the first time in years and allowing fans the opportunity to hear some of Marcus Roberts' earliest compositions. Be sure to keep up to date with all of the news coming from the Marcus ROberts Trio as they always have something exciting planned.

The crowd once again erupts in applause as the band improvises exciting new parts to familiar songs, making them into a whole new musical journey.
