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.

This is a review for the Concert on Saturday, not the film as the title above seems to be inconsistent....but anyway...concert was overall very enjoyable. The selection of pieces performed was varied, most interesting and many were new to me. Keeping in mind that many of the singers were high school age, although not always a flawless performance, it was well executed. Not all solo voices were really strong enough for the music they were performing (Mozart's "Regina Coeli" in particular). Two highlights for me were Sydney Bell's "Flower of Beauty" and the Lauridsen (of course)--both just gorgeous works.

Distinguished Concerts International deserve to be praised for producing this exceptional performance and for their generosity in providing discount and free tix. Seats were 3/4 towards rear, but at Avery Fisher Hall, acoustics are unbelievable....continued
