Bob Baldwin is a jazz artist, composer, keyboardist, producer, arranger, radio host and author. He is currently in the lab, grinding out and updating tracks from his massive unreleased catalog as well as a smooth jazz super-party track that will be like no other…stay tuned for that this fall.

Across a career spanning two decades and twenty albums, Bob Baldwin has proven to be one of the most ubiquitous and ingenious chameleons of Contemporary Jazz—both in his own projects and those he has endeavored upon for others. Recently, he has turned to honoring the canons of giants with Never Can Say Goodbye: A Tribute to Michael Jackson (2010) and Betcha By Golly Wow / The Songs of Thom Bell (2012).

Then, in 2015, Baldwin turned to the sprawling catalog of Stevie Wonder to create one of his finest projects ever, MelloWonder: Songs in the Key of Stevie—an unprecedented one-from-the-heart that has taken him two years to lovingly assemble. MelloWonder is 14 songs, 12 covers and two originals, primarily featuring Baldwin on a battery of ivories, keyboards and synthesizers along with special guests that include saxophonists, Ryan Kilgore (currently a member of Stevie’s Wonderlove band) and Najee, and flautist Ragan Whiteside. Highlights include “Creepin’,” “Lately,” “Love’s Light in Flight,” “You and I”, and “Rocket Love.”

His musical influences include Herbie Hancock, Patrice Rushen, Chick Corea, Earth Wind & Fire, Ramsey Lewis, Stevie Wonder and the late, greats Joe Sample, Miles Davis and George Duke.
