Review: Roberts’ latest disc is the convening of five soulful beings who take the listener on a creative journey through the architecture of Troy’s original compositions. The music is an eclectic concoction of soul, funk, R&B, Latin, & gospel – all musically glued together by each player’s great sense of jazz.
