Harlem Speaks on the Road w/ Bob Stewart

Join us for our next Harlem Speaks on the Road discussion hosted by our Senior Scholar, Loren Schoenberg as he interviews jazz tuba player, Bob Stewart and discusses his career highlights and his legacy.

Over the last 40 years Bob Stewart has established himself as both an innovative tuba player and equally creative jazz educator.  In addition to embracing the tuba’s historical position as the original bass instrument in jazz, Mr. Stewart’s focus on reintroducing the Tuba into a contemporary band setting has encouraged many tuba players and band leaders to explore this approach.

As a band leader, recording artist, and featured soloist Mr. Stewart’s playing has been featured on over 80 recordings.  He has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Gil Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Charlie Haden, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Carla Bley, Wynton Marsalis, Jason Moran, Lester Bowie, Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill,  Arthur Blythe, Jimmy Heath, Frank Foster, David Murray, Chaka Khan, Dap Kings, Aretha Franklin to name a few.

This program is made possible with support from Humanities New York.
