We are excited to announce another great event at Saxquest. On Saturday, September 28, we are thrilled to welcome Bob Mintzer. This event will be a free clinic, from 2pm-4pm, and is open to the public.

Bob Mintzer is perhaps most well known for his own big band and for being a long time member of the Yellowjackets, but his biography reads like a who’s who list of the past 40 years of the music industry. Bob cut his teeth inNew York City, amongst the rising stars of that scene in the early 70’s. Since then he has played with, toured, and/or arranged for some of the biggest names and big bands around. Whether it was playing and arranging in the Buddy Rich Big Band, touring with Jaco Pastorius’ Word of Mouth Band alongside Michael Brecker and Peter Erskine, or in the studio on recordings for James Taylor or Queen, he has done it all.

In addition to his busy playing and arranging career, Bob teaches saxophone and jazz composition at the University of Southern California (USC) where he lives. He maintains a busy touring schedule performing with the Yellowjackets, teaching workshops, and as a guest conductor/soloist with the top college and pro bands.

We are very excited to welcome Mr. Mintzer to the shop. This is a fantastic opportunity to see a true master of the instrument in an intimate setting. Please come out for a great time!
