“His combination of talent, ambition, discipline, stylistic openness and resourcefulness suggest that he is a remarkable musician—perhaps even a Phenomenon…” (Jazz Times)
A 2014 CBS 60 Minutes profile, “The Virtuoso,” traced blind Jacksonville native pianist Marcus Roberts from his early roots at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind to his remarkable career as a modern jazz musician. At age 21, Roberts toured with Wynton Marsalis for six years before striking out on his own. His recordings include solo piano, duets, and trio arrangements of jazz standards as well as symphony orchestra recordings. Roberts is an accomplished composer — with commissions from Jazz at Lincoln Center, Chamber Music America, and ASCAP — and an accomplished educator on the faculty of Florida State University.
