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

Amazing group! I hope to hear them again in the future. They sounded so much like MJQ. And the musical director is wonderful. Having Jim Hall was a nice touch. He still has pizzazz!
This was a wonderful concert and I hope that JLC will...continued
For nearly 50 years they were the greatest of all jazz super-groups, in which the deep, classically-inspired compositional style of pianist John Lewis was brilliantly counterbalanced by the blues-drenched approach of vibraphonist Milt Jackson. Yet the distinctive music of The Modern Jazz Quartet survives even the remarkable men who created it, as drummer Lewis Nash, NEA Jazz Master pianist Kenny Barron, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, and bassist Peter Washington shows in this program of MJQ classics like “Django” and "Bag’s Groove.”
