Jazz pianist and composer Bob Long has performed at the JVC and Saratoga festivals in New York, the Telluride Jazz Festival in Colorado, two times at the Chicago Jazz Festival, as well as the Tonder Festival, the Montreux and North Sea jazz festivals in Europe. Bob has recently moved to San Diego, California leaving Chicago where he lived for thirty years playing, producing, and arranging for several groups. Among those, the quartet he co-leads with saxophonist Brian Gephart, the Gephart Long Quartet, (http://www.glq.com
) has four CD’s on the Birch Tree label, the latest of which is “Play”.
News: The new CD, LIVE AT THE GREEN MILL, recorded at the Green Mill Lounge in Chicago, in June, 2007, is now available below just by clicking on the link. The group that night included Jonathan Paul on bass, Grazyna Auguscik on vocals, myself on piano, Brian Gephart on saxaphone, Henry Johnson on guitar, Charles Heath on drums, and Joe Rendón on percussion. Many of the photos above are from that night. Also available is the solo piano CD, RETRATOS
NOTE: The Retratos CD is running low at CD Baby (I think they have 2 or 3 left). They will be restocked in the near future, but the best thing to do if you want the CD is to go to the itunes store and put" Bob Long Retratos" in the search engine. You can download the whole CD and the artwork for under $10
And also available again is The Bob Long Trio CD, STRAIGHT ROADS, released in 2003 ..ar Records. This is a straight ahead trio with Dave Marr on bass and Tim Davis on drums, and myself on Fender Rhodes piano. Just email Todd Joos at president@cellarrecords and he can set you up
Thanks for supporting the music
Bob performed from 2002-2006 every Friday night in Chicago at the Green Mill with the Green Mill Quartet. The Bob Long Trio has a CD on the Cellar Record label, “Straight Roads”, and Bob has two solo piano releases, one in 2003 entitled “Bird of Aragon” and the most recent from 2005 called “Retratos”, both on Birch Tree. There will also be a third solo album out later this year
