This week we return to one of our favorite Marcus Roberts show from the Jazz at Lincoln Center archives. The pianist leads his iconic suite chronicling the blues in all its forms and feel. He's joined by bassist Roland Guerin and drummer Jason Marsalis and others to play the story. Wendell Pierce is our host.
