Rob Mullins

Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: January 10, 1958    


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.
