《CANADIAN SUITE》

Robi Botos

Robi Botos(p)

Hungarian born Romani/ Musician Robi Botos was raised in a musical family and is largely self-taught. He began his musical career as a child growing up in Budapest playing drums and percussion, and took up piano at age seven. Having caught the ear of Jazz great Oscar Peterson shortly after immigrating to Canada, he quickly became his protégé. The resulting fusion of North American Bebop, Hard Bop, and Modern Jazz along with the deep tradition of Folk music in Eastern Europe and Romantic Classical music, has formulated a sound and approach that is formidable and unsurpassed. Musicians from Branford Marsalis to Chaka Khan, Al Jarreau, and many more consider Robi to be one of the greats on the piano. His 2015 second album "Movin' Forward" earned Robi the 2016 JUNO Award for Jazz Album of the Year.
