Marcus Roberts: “The man who can play anything.” — Wynton Marsalis

Pianist Marcus Roberts is possibly one of jazz music’s most underrated artists of recent times. None other than Wynton Marsalis goes about setting the record straight in the above documentary, which was televised yesterday on the U.S. broadcaster CBS’s “60 Minutes” segment.

This wonderfully inspiring profile — which features the remarkable Roberts playing the music of jazz legends such as Duke Ellington, Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk and Art Tatum — should not be missed!
