Musician

Perry Robinson

Born:

Perry Morris Robinson (born September 17, 1938) is an American free jazz and klezmer clarinettist, an author, and the son of composer and folk singer Earl Robinson. Robinson was born in New York City. After college he went to the Lenox School of Music in 1959. He did some of his early work with Henry Grimes on his first record, Funk Dumpling (with Grimes, Paul Motian and Kenny Barron), and Grimes' The Call (an association revived since Grimes's re-emergence). His uniquely effervescent tone is the result of his unusual double embouchure. Since 1973 he has been working with Jeanne Lee and Gunter Hampel's Galaxy Dream Band
