Pianist, composer and educator Bob Rodriguez is a distinctively imaginative musician possessing virtuoso technique, extraordinary harmonic sensibility and an incomparable approach to combinng aspects of European classical and Latin music with modern jazz.
Throughout his career Bob has worked with such artists as Kenny Wheeler, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Billy Hart and others and has arranged for 4 hands with classical pianist Cathy Campbell.
He has performed at such venues as New York’s Blue Note, Birdland, Iridium, Sweet Rhythm, The Kitano, Cornelia Street Cafe, Trumpets, Cecil’s to name a few. Bob has played solo concerts at Gracie Mansion and broadcast performances on NPR in Texas, Maine and New York.
In addition to his work as a performer, Rodriguez is a very much in demand clinician/instructor in the world of jazz and classical music education.
I am available for private study as well as for lectures, workshops and clinics for intermediate and advanced players, working with students of all ages at institutions or schools.
