Bobby Shew is one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time. Equally at home in a variety of genres, he has played a powerful lead in many of the world's top bands, but is equally revered for his expressive solos. As Clark Terry says: “There aren't too many around who can play great lead, have tremendous chops, play great solos on trumpet for all kinds of songs, and still play beautiful flugelhorn, too. Bobby runs the whole spectrum.” For many years Bobby was one of Hollywood's busiest studio artists; you have heard him on the soundtracks of literally hundreds of movies and television shows. He's also made more than a thousand recordings. But despite his busy schedule he still finds time for regular performance tours of North America, Europe, and Asia. In addition to being a performer, Bobby is very interested in music education and gives highly inspirational clinics around the world.
