Troy Roberts – TALES & TONES record release
Troy Roberts is a New York City based Australian saxophonist who maintains a busy performance and recording schedule with some of the greatest jazz artists of today. He’s a regular member of The Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts Quartet, The Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts ‘Blue 5’, and is also the newest member of Joey DeFrancesco’s new quartet, ‘The People’. Roberts’ 7th release, Tales & Tones is an acoustic quartet adventure, featuring a powerhouse rhythm section comprised of his long time collaborator, Venezuelan born pianist Silvano Monasterios, along with two of the most important names in jazz today; Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts on the drums and Robert Hurst on acoustic bass – both of whom bring more than just their jazz royalty to Roberts’ original compositions and arrangements. The tone of this record ranges from hard swinging to pensive at times, while casually unwrapping the various tales via musical conversation amongst four great minds.
Finding the time in between his busy tour schedule, Roberts is proud to present this one and only official record release show, which will feature the superb musicianship of Silvano Monasterios (piano), Joseph Lepore (acoustic bass) and Jimmy Macbride (drums). Not to be missed, come along and tell your friends!
