- Event Details
As the world's preeminent banjo player, 14-time Grammy winner Bela Fleck has garnered a reputation for genre-bending for his collaborations with a tabla player, an African thumb pianist and a traditional bluegrass band. The Marcus Roberts Trio, led by Roberts on piano, Jason Marsalis on drums and Rodney Jordan on bass, are keen torch-holders of the classic jazz tradition. The mix of these four, Roberts, Fleck, Jordan, Marsalis, creates a new way forward in jazz, deeply rooted in the form, while pulling from the extensive backgrounds and music journeys of all the members, creating stellar performances that are exuberant, fresh, soaring, bold and, of course, eclectic.
