Robi Botos has been hailed as one of the most diverse multiinstrumentalists
of this generation. From the hard-bop style of Bill Evans
and Herbie Hancock, to the swing of Oscar Peterson and the heartfelt
melodic expression of Mulgrew Miller and Cedar Walton, Robi has
managed to master the technique of his idols, all while showcasing his
musical expressions in a voice that is purely his own. While Robi is known
for being a strong player in the traditional jazz and funk fields, he always
incorporates an element of the music he grew up listening to into his
playing. Says organist, trumpeter and pianist Joey Defrancesco: “Robi
is one of the most swingin’, soulful, funky, world class players I’ve ever
heard, and he has a technique like you can’t believe. Definitely one of my
very favorite players!!!”
Born of Romani descent in Hungary, Robi taught himself first to play
drums as a young child, and got his initial taste of being a professional
musician working throughout Budapest. Robi was first introduced to the
piano when he was 7 years old, and never looked back. He continued to
perform throughout Hungary and when he turned 20, decided to move
his wife and children to Canada, to further pursue the career he was born
for. Now 20 years later, Robi has solidified himself as one of the most
sought-after pianists in the country
