Bobby Selvaggio: "The Standards Project"

Presented by BLU Jazz+ at BLU Jazz+, Akron OH

Oct 30 2015
Bobby Selvaggio: "The Standards Project"

Acclaimed alto saxophonist returns to BLU with an exploration of the Great American Songbook with a personalized spin, taking rhythmic & harmonic influences from every corner of the planet! Featuring Theron Brown, Dan Pappalardo, Anthony Taddeo.

 

Bobby Selvaggio is one of the leading alto saxophone voices on today’s jazz scene. In the words of pianist Kenny Werner, “Bobby is among the best of players out there,” and legendary saxophonist Joe Lovano praises Bobby by calling him “one of the few young saxophonists on the scene today that captures you with his strong presence, focus, and sound.”

Bobby, who grew up in the Cleveland area, earned his Bachelor of Music in Music Performance from Kent State University. He eventually moved to New York City and earned a Masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music. While in New York, Bobby studied with Joe Lovano, Bobby Watson, Dick Oatts, and Maria Schneider.
