About Me

Tobin Mueller's musical compositions range from Jazz Fusion to

Progressive Rock, Broadway musicals to Old-School Funk,

Contemporary Jamband to Classical ballet. In the late 1970s he was

one of several composer-pianists who developed what became known

as New Age music, although Tobin's style identifies more closely with

complex modal/post-bop jazz. Mueller is a NYC Dramatist Guild

playwright/lyricist, a member of ASCAP, and has appeared on over 35

albums. He has just released a retrospective 5-volume Best Of

series of remastered recordings - read more about him on his website


My Jazz Story

Jazz is on a par with Bach and the best virtuoso progressive rock, all of which I love and have performed. I love complexity, emotion, variety and anticipation. I've worked with Grammy winners Paul Nelson (also in the Blues Hall of Fame), Dave Brubeck, Ron Carter, Michael Hedges, Donny McCaslin (last collaborator with David Bowie), Jon Anderson (from Yes), Brian Welch ("Head" from Korn), as well as Grammy nominees Dane Richeson (Blue Note Records), Ken Schaphorst, Entcho Todorov, Janet Planet and more. His albums have included contributions from drummers Scott Rockenfield (Queensrÿche), Lamar Moore (Lettuce), Mike Nappi (J Geils Band) and countless other musicians from around the globe. Early in his career, I had the honor of playing with Maynard Ferguson.
