Pianist Bob Baldwin Debuts in the Hudson Valley on 6/11 @ the Town Crier Cafe/Beacon

Bob Baldwin is an American Pianist/Composer/Arranger/Radio Host/Inventor who has recorded over 34 cd's in his career.

The Mt. Vernon, NY native has recorded on six of the seven inhabitable continents, and while Antarctica is not on his recording bucket list, his short international list, including Dubai, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, UK, Canada, is quite impressive. "Whether it's a massive festival crowd of 30, 000 or an intimate restaurant audience of less than 60, I refuse to rob my audience of great music, top-notch effort and a good personal experience", says Baldwin.

He’s been coined by industry peers as the “Ray Charles of Contemporary Jazz”, having owned all but seven of his 34 solo recordings. He claims that ownership has helped to sustain him throughout the current pandemic era.

His Radio program, NewUrbanJazz, established in 2008, celebrated its’ 700th consecutive weekly radio program on February 28, 2022.
The pianist's personal goal is to release a 12-song project per year, and since 1988, he has released over 34 projects, of which 27 are owned by his company, City Sketches Records (distributed by The Orchard/Sony Music). Discs #35 and 36 are in the works.

Bob’s current live disc, “The Stay at Home Series” marks an industry adjustment. Recorded in 2020-2021, this is a closed live recording in the studio with some of his New York musical compadres. Bob will be joined by Tony Lewis (drums), and Brazil Percussionist Cafe Da Silva, who has graced recordings by Djavan, Jobim, Ivan Lins and Eliane Elias.
