Randall Sutin

Randy was born in Great Falls, Montana. He studied piano starting at age 4 and guitar starting at age 8. At age 10 he began study of the drums. Randy began playing music professionally (mostly rock and some country) with local groups at age 13. At age 20, he began to study mallet percussion, in particular the vibraphone, which has now become the main staple of Randy's professional life as a musician.

In 1985, Randy relocated to Trenton NJ, then to the Philadelphia area in 1989. He was a regular member of Bill Hollis’s quartet and soon began working regularly and recording with the Barry Sames Jazz Ensemble. Randy was a regular member of the late pianist Eddie Green’s group and was featured on Eddie’s last CD, “Shades of Green”. He has also played and recorded with Walter Bell and the Latin Jazz Unit. Recent work has focused The Birdhouse Project, a trio with Jim Miller and Tyrone Brown, performing the compositions of Charlie Parker. Randy is also featured on Jim Miller's newest album “It's Another” playing marimba.
