Pulitzer-winning trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center artistic director Wynton Marsalis has called Marcus Roberts "the genius of the modern piano," and there's no question that he's one of the greatest jazz pianists and composers working today. Since his Jazz at Lincoln Center debut in 1987, Roberts' deeply significant recorded and commissioned works have honored some of his most revered predecessors of the piano. Roberts has a long history of treasuring the tenets of jazz through his work, which, for the last quarter century, has epitomized preservation through innovation. Joining him for this musical exploration of the Piano Masters of Melody is his new ensemble The Modern Jazz Generation, a large ensemble that features nearly a dozen top musicians spanning three generations, including bassists Thaddeus Expose and Raviv Markovitz, drummer Jason Marsalis and sax man Ricardo Pascale.

Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.Marty Stuart & Connie Smith info • Feb 20 2014 star this tip starred

This performance was a complete treat for the ears! The vocal and musical talents of Stuart, Smith and the musicians backing them up ("The Fabulous Superlatives" earned their name!) were showcased in this concert that was part of Jazz at Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series. From "Hillbilly Rock" to "How Great Thou Art" and bluegrass virtuosity in between this was a an education in the roots and blending of country music/gospel/blues/bluegrass. Peppered with great anecdotes and a mini-museum collection of items on stage from Stuart's personal collection (e.g.,Hank Williams' shirt, Johnny Cash's guitar) this concert was truly a gem of an experience. I would go see Stuart and Smith perform again and again and hope they decide to perform in New York City in the future. As to the venue, the acoustics are great and having a view of Columbus Circle as the backdrop for the performers gave it a surprisingly magical touch (instead of being distracting). Even though I found out about this concert just a few days prior, thanks to Goldstar I had access to a great evening of music!

I had a marvelous time seeing them play traditional country music on the stage. It took me back to the days of yesteryear, when country music was young.
But it would of been nice if it was aloud to take photos and videos of the...continued
