Bob Mann

Bob Mann has been playing guitar since he was thirteen years old. He was initially influenced by what he heard on the radio…Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and The Everly Brothers. Under the tutelage of his father, an established NY studio pianist, Bob began to expand his musical interests by adding the trumpet to his repertoire and exploring the music of Wes Montgomery, Bill Evans, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. Bob continued his education by majoring in music theory at Queens College and the Manhattan School of Music. His college summers were spent honing his performance skills at resorts in the Catskills, playing the shows and jamming after hours with many of the East Coast’s best young jazz players. A tour with Charles Aznavour led Bob to Washington D.C

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
