Roberto Tyson was born in Cuba, reared in Puerto Rico and New York City. Roberto, a prodigy in his early youth, was schooled in the ways of the grand masters of jazz guitar and played along side his father, also a guitarist, with premier musicians of the time. Young Roberto developed a reputation as one of the best players around. Today, Roberto brings a Latin, Caribbean and traditional jazz influence to the richness of his music.

My musical influences are my father who is also a guitarist and a percussionist. Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, George Benson and Pat Martino.
