Bobby Selvaggio Quintet Featuring Robin Eubanks @ BOP STOP

March 10 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm

Bobby Selvaggio Quintet Featuring Robin Eubanks @ BOP STOP

Robin Eubanks will be coming to Northeast Ohio to do a series of concerts and a Masterclass at Kent State University. The famed trombonist, known for performing in legendary bassist Dave Holland's bands, will be performing at BOP STOP with Kent State University Jazz Studies Faculty Bobby Selvaggio (Director of Jazz Studies), Chris Coles, Theron Brown, and Aidan Plank, and Zaire Darden.

This show is presented in partnership with our friends at BLU Jazz+

Robin Eubanks is the premier jazz trombonist of his generation.

Whether performing with his groups, Mental Images or EB3 or with The SF Jazz Collective, Dave Holland Quintet / Big Band, Robin is an artist whose impact on audiences has proven powerful and lasting. Now with his current recording, Klassik Rock Volume 1, Robin cements his position as a progressive giant in music.

Robin was born to a very musical family: His brother, Kevin Eubanks, was the musical director for The Tonight Show; their mother is a music educator; another brother, Duane, is a renown trumpet player; and their Uncle Ray Bryant was a prominent jazz pianist in his own right.

Robin’s musical education began at the age of eight and continued through college, when he graduated cum laude from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. As a student, he studied not only trombone, but also Music Theory, Harmony, Composition and Arranging. Following his graduation, the young trombonist moved to New York City where he began a career that has since yielded an amazing array of collaborations with such notable artists as Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Eddie Palmieri, Sun Ra, Barbra Streisand, The Rolling Stones and Talking Heads – just to name a few. He’s won Grammys for his performances on Michael Brecker’s Wide Angles and Dave Holland’s What Goes Around and Overtime.

Robin divides his rigorous performing schedule with an appointment at The Oberlin College Conservatory where he serves as a tenured Professor of Jazz Trombone and Jazz Composition. He is an esteemed professor at Berklee College of Music, and served at New England Conservatory for two years. In addition, he taught at Prince Claus Conservatoire in The Netherlands for five years. And, if that were not enough, in the intervening years, Robin has become a popular lecturer, Yamaha clinician and conducts Master Classes at leading institutions throughout the U.S. and abroad.

In 2014, Robin won the Jazz Times Critics Poll for Best Trombonist and is a multiple winner of Downbeat’s Readers and Critics Polls for Trombonist of the Year. He’s also won compositional grants from Chamber Music America and an ASCAP Composer’s grant. As with his performing career, his compositional interests are staggeringly diverse. Musically fluent, but also stylistically multilingual, the eclectic composer speaks a variety of musical “languages”. How does he do it? The key appears to be a combination of having a complete command of his craft, but also an innate gift that can sound like a combination of math and magic.

The band features:

  • Robin Eubanks-trombone
  • Bobby Selvaggio-alto sax
  • Chris Coles-tenor sax
  • Theron Brown-piano
  • Aidan Plank-bass
  • Zaire Darden-drums
