PERSONAL MESSAGE

Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn.

Charlie Parker

For the last year, we all collectively have lived a very different experience.  Everyone in the music community has been impacted by Covid, but none more so than those who make a living from live performances. 

The coming year brings us all the hope of better times, but it is still a long way back.  Live performances are months away at the earliest, and some of the venues musicians have called home for years are gone for good. 

So as you think of those still in need, please remember the artists who would have been performing at clubs, restaurants, and hotels, and are still waiting for the chance to play for you again.

REVIEWS

TOUR REVIEWS

Rob is garnering wide praise on his current tour.  Check out the reviews:

"This is an experience both exhilarating and, to anyone who has strummed a guitar or blown a horn, however feebly, humbling."

"Rob Scheps deserves wider recognition. Since he arrived in New York City in the 1980s, he has been an important contributor to many bands, in addition to leading his own groups. He is also a nimble soprano saxophonist and flautist..."

ALBUM REVIEWS

Live at the Churchill School

 

"The energy of live jazz has been missed over the last year, which makes an accomplished live record such as this all the more satisfying."

Comencio

"Here we have the inventiveness of John Coltrane, the swagger of Dexter Gordon and the lyricism of Ben Webster and this reviewer loved it."

NYC JAZZ RECORD

"Scheps and band interject modal numbers and post-bop riffing amid mournful cool-jazz, Baker-esque ballads."
