De belangstelling in jazz en improvisatie kreeg Marc al op jonge leeftijd van zijn vader, die zelf een professionele jazzpianist was. Marc begon met klassieke pianolessen toen hij tien jaar oud was. Hij kreeg les van privédocenten totdat hij op 16-jarige leeftijd toegelaten werd aan het Koninklijke Conservatorium Den Haag. Daar studeerde hij jazz piano bij Frans Elsen en klassiek piano bij Geoffrey Madge en Lanny Kho. Marc studeerde in 1991 af en verhuisde naar New York waar hij enige tijd studeerde aan het conservatorium. Hij ontmoette daar medestudenten en jazzpianisten Barry Harris, Richie Beirach en Kenny Werner.

Marc keerde in 1993 terug naar Nederland en naast het beginnen van zijn eigen trio werkte hij nauw samen met muzikanten en docenten wereldwijd. Hij nam meer dan een dozijn cd’s op als leider en werkte hij mee op vele cd’s als medemuzikant. Hij bundelde krachten met jazzmuzikanten als Dave Liebman, Clark Terry, Art Farmer, Charlie Mariano, Billy Hart, Santi Di Briano, Tony Lakatos, Michael Moore en vele Nederlandse jazz-artiesten.
Marc is ook een zeer gewaardeerde docent. Op dit moment is Marc faculteit medewerker aan het Prins Claus conservatorium in Groningen. Hij geeft ook wereldwijd lezingen en masterclasses.
 

De klavecimbelstukken van J.S Bach zijn vaker door de vingers van vele hedendaagse jazzpianisten gespeeld. Maar leent de muziek zich tot jazz-interpretatie? Pianist Marc van Roon heeft iets anders in gedachten. Meer dan de helft van de stukken van deze bundel toont weinig gelijkenis met de thema’s of vormen van Bach. Roon verduidelijkt:
 

“Ik heb de improvisaties die dichter bij de tekst en partituur zijn variaties genoemd en de improvisaties die spontaan zijn ontstaan…. inventies genoemd”.
 

Klassieke luisteraars zullen de doordachte behandeling van de thema’s van Bach waarderen. Jazz luisteraars zullen kunnen genieten van de inventieve manier waarop van Roon speelt met de thema’s van Bach.
