Bob Schwartz

BOB took up the flute in 3rd grade. As a high school junior he was all-Nassau-County (New York) playing Mozart. But at age 12 he and pal David Berger started collecting jazz recordings and listening after bedtime to an a.m. radio program out of WBAL Baltimore, “The Harley Show,” which featured the music of Duke Ellington.

Bob and David won Downbeat summer scholarships to Berklee School of Music, where he studied sax with the legendary Joe Viola and sat in, at Boston's Jazz Workshop, with the great Lou Donaldson.

By 12th grade Bob and David were writing the arrangements for the Mepham High School stage band and playing in sessions around Long Island. While at Cornell, Bob played alto, tenor, baritone sax, and flute in the Ithaca College Jazz Lab, and co-led, with David, the group After Hours.
