Born: December 6, 1975 Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Formed in 2003, The Kevin Robinson Ensemble (KRE) is lead by Baltimore saxophonist, Kevin Robinson. KRE has challenged itself to explore the art of conversation through combining group improvisation, original compositions and rearranged jazz standards. The group has been blessed to collaborate with visual artists Chris Taylor and David Cunningham along with spoken word and hip-hop artists from Chicago, Mississippi, New York, Los Angeles, and Baltimore.
The Mission, is to KREate music that is introspective to the ensemble, engaging and entrancing to the audience, and which stimulates thought and conjures diverse emotions reflecting this thing called life.
Our compositions provide us a forum for musical discussions, Mr. Robinson explained. We take a member's basic idea and converse through a journey of introspection and sincere expression.
