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.
