Marcus Roberts The Marcus Roberts Trio with Roland Guerin on bass and Jason Marsalis on drums will perform a six-night run at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center July 21 through the July 26. Roberts and company have a long association with Jazz at Lincoln Center and with Wynton Marsalis, dating back to Roberts' joining Marsalis' band in 1985.

The Marcus Roberts Trio has spent over a decade together, a relationship perfected on the new J Master Records album 'New Orleans Meets Harlem, Vol. 1.' In his Downbeat Magazine feature in the June, 2009 issue, Howard Reich calls the new album “impressive, “ continuing, “the end of his recording hiatus marks the reemergence of an important voice." USA Today's Brian Mansfield called the album “a nonlinear master class on jazz styles." In Jazz Times, Marc Silver wrote, “Roberts is clearly at an artistic peak."
