Australian saxophonist and composer Troy Roberts is based in New York City maintaining a busy performance and recording schedule around the globe with some of the greatest jazz artists of today. He’s a member of The Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts Quartet, the newest member of Joey DeFrancesco’s new quartet, ‘The People’, and is currently celebrating his 7th record as a leader, Tales & Tones (Inner Circle Music). Tonight's show will feature his 'Nu-Jive 5' band and will debut brand new compositions about to be recorded for his next release.
The Music of Troy Roberts’ ‘Nu-Jive 5’ is an eclectic concoction of soul, R&B, electronica, gospel, and even glimpses of the 19th century romantic period – all musically glued together by every player’s great sense of Jazz etiquette. However, the main concept behind the group is to serve as the meeting place of five great musical minds.
"Roberts though young in age, certainly has an arsenal of abilities under his belt, and has the makings and foundation of a lasting great saxophonist. Versatile in style, with a strong grasp of yesterday and today, he is a force to be reckoned with no matter the setting. He is more than one to watch, he is one to follow closely.”
