Herb Robertson: Trumpet
Herb Robertson has been active as a member of the NY Downtown Improviser's scene since 1980. He has since traveled the world playing in jazz and creative music festivals. Herb brings a special kind of modern lyricism through his trumpet and other wind-type instruments, having influenced younger generations of trumpeters and musicians alike. Robertson’s music is simultaneously a game of equals and a parody of excesses, with an irreverent use of structured freedom. It is also an obtuse refraction of Ellingtonian hues and blues that’s both dramatic and compelling. Herb has recorded extensively and can be heard on many CDs, radio and tele-broadcasts.
