Friday September 9th at 9pm The World Stage Art, Education & Performance Gallery presents Bobby West.
During his early childhood the musical talent of Bobby West was recognized.As a 6-year old boy Bobby started to play the piano.
Although his family saw him as the future church piano-player, he soon developed a deep interest in jazz-music. He never stopped playing jazz.
Even during his years in University, where he studied classical piano and composition, he stayed involved in jazz-music.
Bobby West performed with a great variety of singers and musicians, such as Smokey Robinson, Helen Reddy, Wilson Pickett, the Ray Charles Orchestra. A lot of his experience also comes from his drive to play as much as he can with other musicians, whether it's electric or acoustic, in trio's or larger groups.*
His recording experience is both as musician as producer. This list includes names as Billy Higgins, Wynton Marsalis and Bradford Marsalis, R.Kelly.*
Bobby is also a very fine composer. His melodies show a great sense of artistic musicality. The lyrics of his songs are written with the heart of a poet. You can find some of his own compositions on the cd HIP PROPHECY (Bobby West Trio, 2004).#torchbearer #theworldstage #grassroots #revival #anlastory #lemiertparkvillage #legends #jazzmaster
