Across the Imaginary Divide – Béla Fleck & The Marcus Roberts Trio

feat. Rodney Jordan & Jason Marsalis

Label: Rounder

I first heard Marcus playing piano in Wynton Marsalis’s amazing band in the mid 1980’s. Marcus totally blew my mind. I never expected he’d have any interest in playing with the likes of me, but at a jam session in Savanah, Rob Gibson introduced us, we jammed, and quickly became very excited about the idea of collaborating. The album was recorded in Tallahassee, Florida with Marcus and his amazing trio, and it led to a widespread US tour. I remain Marcus’s biggest fan.
