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.

With masterful tributes to the late Michael Jackson (Never Can Say Goodbye) and Thom Bell (Betcha By Golly Wow: The Songs of Thom Bell) now under his belt, Baldwin again ventures out with his own creative endeavor. The tunes here are typical Baldwin: Tight, well-phrased, often funky, and with a lot of bounce and charm. Along with rich covers of Herbie Hancock and Freddie Hubbard, Baldwin has Marion Meadows, Joey Sommerville, Ragan Whiteside, and Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, among others helping out here. The result is simply of top-shelf quality.
