Marcus Roberts

A Virtual Concert for Solo Piano
pre-taped show available December 20 through December 31


Pianist/composer/educator extraordinaire Marcus Roberts has come through Burlington a number of times over the years with his acclaimed, long-running trio. Now, he presents a different facet of his incredible musicianship with a solo piano virtual performance, on demand through December. A quintessential musician's musician, Roberts crafts a set that expresses the full range of his instrument, covering a mind-boggling array of idioms—gospel, blues, swing, ragtime, and familiar jazz standards, plus a pristine take on a holiday staple ('tis the season, after all)—all gelled together by his intelligence and his fluid, intuitive technique. With just Roberts and his signature Steinway on stage, this is a pure showcase for his range and his chameleonic playing. It's the most fun you can have while getting schooled on 20th-century American music. Like the man himself, this program is witty, warm, welcoming, and dazzling.

Marcus today is a walking encyclopedia of America's jazz heritage, with the DNA of pianists long gone in his fingertips.
