Bob Mamet

Bob Mamet is an internationally acclaimed Jazz pianist and composer. Born and raised in Chicago Illinois, he attended the prestigious Peabody Conservatory before heading west to Los Angeles to begin a career as a composer and studio musician. Over the next several years he composed music for over a hundred projects in T.V. film, and advertising, in addition to touring as a sideman and bandleader.

Bob recorded three highly successful albums for Atlantic, plus additional recordings for Sony and Warner Brothers.
