Having recently returned to Australia, saxophonist and composer Troy Roberts has had a busy few years. Whilst teaching part time at the University of Miami, Troy also won two consecutive Downbeat Jazz Soloist Awards, was the only Australian finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition, and continues to maintain a busy performance schedule around the globe, having shared the stage with greats such as Sammy Figueroa, Robby Ameen, Lew Soloff, Lauryn Hill, James Morrison, Kevin Mahogany, Slide Hampton, Gary Bartz, Geoff Keezer, Rodney Whitaker, Carl Allen, Melton Mustaffa, and Dennis McCrell.
Troy’s quartet sets its focus on capturing the raw energy and excitement of the moment in a straight-ahead, hard swinging jazz style, with repertoire comprised of original compositions and re-arranged jazz and contemporary classics!!
