In 2014, Marcus Roberts’ life and work was featured on a segment of the celebrated CBS News program 60 Minutes, entitled “The Virtuoso”, which traced Roberts’ life to date from his early roots in Jacksonville and at the Florida School for the deaf and blind to his remarkable career as a modern jazz musician. Roberts toured with Wynton Marsalis starting at age 21 when he left to tour with his own band. In addition to being an accomplished composer and classically trained musician, Roberts has also been long dedicated to the training and development of younger musicians.

Vocalist Cyrille Aimee was primarily raised in Samois-sur-Seine, France, the same place where legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt had lived, which contributed to her great love of gypsy musical influences. In her words, “I was hypnotized by gypsy music, which made me want to tap my feet; music that swings makes me so happy.” Aimee’s hybrid of influences has resulted in a sound that is at once both fresh and enlivening, which is to say nothing of her singular voice, destined to enthrall audiences for decades to come.

Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie the whole thing together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman with a voice from another era, and you have the Hot Sardines (and let’s not forget about the tap dancer)! The Sardine sound is steeped in hot jazz, salty stride piano and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt, and Waller used to make: straight-up, foot-stomping jazz.
