Bob Baldwin, Lori Williams

Bob Baldwin is a jazz artist, composer, keyboardist, producer, arranger, radio host and author. His father, Robert Garfield Baldwin Sr. who recorded one solo LP under his leadership, played piano with bassists Keter Betts and Art Davis. Bob’s cousin is renowned pianist Larry Willis so he clearly stems from musical excellence. 

His latest release was an offering covering North and South America with "The Brazilian-American Soundtrack", which features tunes written by Djavan, Ivan Lins, Jobim and some original pieces. The double-album (his first) is 26-songs deep.

Baldwin has spanned his career across four decades. His 20th disc milestone was achieved in 2013 with his twentieth CD titled "Twenty", Bob Baldwin has proven to be one of the most ubiquitous and ingenious chameleons of Contemporary Jazz - both in his own projects and those he has endeavored upon for others. 

In addition to his work as a Bandleader and Solo artist, Bob Baldwin hosts a nationally syndicated weekly radio show ('The NewUrbanJazz Lounge' broadcasts across the National Public Radio (NPR) Network and the African American Public Radio Service as well as the internet) and author of the music biz E-book: “You Better Ask Somebody (Staying On Top of Your Career in the ‘Friggin’ Music Business)” (2011).
