Bob Parsons Quartet

April 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Bob Parsons Jazz Central Studios

$10 admission. $5 with Student ID.

After 15 years on the East coast, saxophonist/Arranger Bob Parsons returned to the Twin Cities in 2008. While in NYC he contributed arrangements, performance, and production services for over 30 commercial recordings.  He has credits on Blue Note, Verve, and Steeplechase labels.  Concurrent with the move back to Minnesota, Bob decided to emphasize his arranging skills in a more concentrated way.  In 2014 Bob produced the ACME Jazz Company CD featuring Arne Fogel and 10 of Bob’s arrangements.  Jazz radio personality Jerry Swanberg selected this recording as one of his top 20 national picks for 2014.  Bob is currently Artistic Director for the ACME Jazz Company and they appear at Crooners Lounge the 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month.  Bob also arranged the entire show for Andrew Walesch’s “100 years of Sinatra” tribute, for an eleven-piece band, opening at the Chanhassen Theatre on March 6 and 7.
