Avalon Jazz Experience: Marcus Roberts Modern Jazz Generation

September 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

“Pianist Marcus Roberts is known for many things: a genius skill that makes him the logical successor to Thelonious Monk (with a lot of Fats Waller in his stride), an immense love of the blues and a soulful sense of tradition and invention.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Roberts will bring 12 players to the Avalon stage and introduce Easton to some phenomenal new talent while he unwinds his own dazzling skills. Based on the principle of mentoring that has played such a critical part of the evolution of jazz, the band incorporates into the roster of every performance a core group of talented younger musicians as part of its mission to pass on the grand legacy of jazz to new generations.
