Bob Baldwin is an International Jazz artist, having recorded on 4 different continents since the beginning of his recording career (1988).

In 2015, his tribute to Stevie Wonder ("MelloWonder/Songs in the Key of Stevie), broke top through the top-10 Billboard Jazz Charts, his 12th Top-20 disc.

In 1988, Roberta Flack selected him as the Sony Innovators Award winner in a highly publicized new-artist-signing contest. He was then introduced to music mogul Sylvia Rhone, where he signed his first deal with the now-defunct Atlantic Jazz label joining then labelmates Bobby Lyle, Paul Jackson, Jr. and Gerald Albright. 

BB has worked with such Jazz and Pop stars like George Benson, Grover Washington, Jr. (RIP), Will Downing, Marion Meadows, Pieces of a Dream, Phil Perry, Chuck Loeb and Chieli Minucci, to name a select few.

This Spring, look for Bob's latest disc, his 22nd solo release.

(2010) Never Can Say Goodbye (A Tribute to Michael Jackson)

by Bob Baldwin

Available at iTunes, Amazon and our online Music Store.

_______

Peaked #14 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts.

"Baldwin interprets Jackson in a pretty straightforward and direct manner, with few frills or unnecessary flourishes. Another artist might have overly embellished the material with strings, horns, a battery of overdubbed keyboards, vocalists and other trappings; instead, Baldwin lets the music do the talking, and guest appearances by guitarists Steve Oliver, Chieli Minnucci and Chuck Loeb, along with trumpeter Joey Sommerville, add subtle but not showy contributions. Loeb—the newly recruited replacement for Larry Carlton in Fourplay —shines especially on "Never Can Say Goodbye.” - All About Jazz
