Rob Mullins

2012 UPDATE

During his productive career as a pianist, composer, bandleader and educator, Rob Mullins has performed in many different settings and styles. His versatile approach has allowed him to erase the artificial boundary line between “contemporary” and “traditional” jazz, sounding like himself in all idioms. Mullins' discography is very diverse and is best viewed release by release rather than song by song or sub genre.

“Highly recommended” Rick Anderson ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“One of the true unsung heroes of contemporary jazz” Jonathan Widran ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“Breathtaking and tremendously moving, his compositions are a pleasure” Bernard Bauer Music Connection

”Pianist Rob Mullins makes major statements in both jazz and a combination of Latinized-rock into a fusion that is all his own” Glenn Mitchell LA JAZZ SCENE

”Rob Mullins is so far ahead of everybody else, it will be awhile before the rest of the world catches up, if they do.” Bubba Jackson KJAZZ Radio FM 88.1

”Rob Mullin's STORYTELLER CD is one of the best musical compositions I've ever heard. His ability to keep evolving through his music is inspiring. This particular CD has a classical touch to it while Mullins remains true to his jazz roots. The classical infuence is especially evident in the piece, “Sleep Sweet”. Still, every other song invokes the feeling of pure fascination! He blends the two musical genres together in such an extraordinary way that the listener is swept away into a world of beauty. Mullins is doing what he was surely born to do and that is to compose and play great music. I believe history will portray him as one of the most important musicians of our time!” Cheryl Hullin-Amazon.com

”Rob Mullins is a pianist at the level of Keith Jarrett and I encourage you to implement his educational programs.” Ghenady Meirson-Curtis University

“Rob Mullins is the most prolific composer in JAZZ today.” Ronnie Laws- saxophonist

“What artistry!” Hubert Laws-flautist

“Very few great teachers are great players, and very few great players are great teachers. Rob Mullins is a stellar example of a great player who is also a great teacher.” Greg Woll-Fullerton College Director of Jazz Studies

“I must say, the Rob Mullins Trio set was dazzling.” Larry Jackstein- Snowbird Jazz Festival
