One thing is true of both jazz musicians and Radiohead fans — they can be very outspoken about their obsessions. If you engage with them, the topics of either jazz or Radiohead will inevitably become the center of the conversation, and rarely is there room for disagreement or opportunity to shift topics. You will be forced to choose between Charles Mingus and Miles Davis (Tip: You will be right, no matter who you pick), and if asked about your favorite Radiohead song, whatever you do, never say "Creep."
Then there's Bobby Muncy. The esteemed 42-year-old saxophonist holds court in the classical jazz world and as a Radiohead head, which is why he has dedicated several performances each year over the course of 12 years to his ensemble, the Radiohead Jazz Project.
Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Miami, Florida, Robert Muncy was 11 when he began studying the clarinet, then moved to the tenor saxophone in school and at 16, began playing with several groups in South Florida. Over the next 16 years Robert Muncy has played professionally along the east coast and toured internationally with several bands. He has performed with The Temptations, Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Platters, The Drifters, The Spinners, Skip Mahoney and the Casuals, Joe Piscopo, Nestor Torres, Bobby Parker, Tabou Combo, D’Zine, Wayna, Joe Herrera, Anthony Pirog, Thad Wilson Big Band, Matt Rippetoe, Will Rast, Rodney Richardson, John Lee, Chick Hall, The Funkark and many others. Robert has performed at such venues and events such as Blues Alley, Twins Jazz, The Blue Note (New York), Bohemian Cavern, The Van Dyke Cafe, Mobile Jazz Festival (Mobile, AL), Abruzzo Jazz Festival (Italy), Notre Dame Jazz Festival (South Bend, IN), The National Zoo – Zoofari, Calle Ocho (Miami, FL), Bogarts in the Fan (Richmond, VA), The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA), The American Visionary Arts Museum (Baltimore, MD), Osyrus Fest, Bossa Bistro (Washington, D.C.), The Air and Space Museum, National Museum of Art Sculpture Garden, just to name a few.
