All Keyed Up

Marcus Roberts lost his sight when he was just 5 years old. But that didn't stop him from becoming one of the top pianists of his generation. A prodigious talent, Roberts landed his first recording contract at age 15, then went on to perform with renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, who calls him "the genius of modern piano." The maestro known for his innovative approach to jazz takes the stage with the Modern Jazz Generation, a 12-piece ensemble. Together, these top-notch performers present Romance, Swing and the Blues, an original composition that mixes tight rhythms with wild improvisations.
