A WRTI CD RECOMMENDATION. A TOP RECORDING OF 2015. There are jazz pianists who lead their own bands and then there is the innovative Marcus Roberts, an Ellington acolyte and original Young Lion along with his peer, bandleader and collaborator, Wynton Marsalis. Though some critics shrugged when Roberts released his early opus, Deep In The Shed (Novus, 1998), many – including me – found that work exhilarating and an essential jazz recording.
