In the jazz world, there isn't much that Bob Mintzer has not done. He's a 20-year member of the Grammy award winning Yellowjackets, leads his own Grammy winning large jazz ensemble, serves as the director of jazz studies at USC and performs with his own quartet. He's also written more than 200 big band arrangements and has 26 solo recordings with both big bands and small ensembles.

He honed his big band writing and playing skills in the bands of Tito Puente, Buddy Rich, Thad Jones-Mel Lewis. As an instrumentalist Bob has worked with Art Blakey, Jaco Pastorius, Sam Jones, Randy Brecker, Gil Evans, the Yellowjackets, GRP All Star Big Band, Mike Manieri, The New York Philharmonic, to name a few. He has done session work for James Taylor, Steve Winwood, Queen, Donald Fagan, Milton Nascimento, and countless others.

Bob has recorded some 30 solo projects and was awarded with 4 grammy nominations and a Grammy award for best large jazz ensemble recording in 2001 for Homage to Count Basie on the DMP label.

Opening for Mintzer will be the Milestones Summer Jazz Faculty Ensemble, a group that is comprised of many of the Valley's best jazz musicians including John Ayala, Mike Dana, Dale Engstrom, Richard Giddens, Brian Hamada, Larry Honda, Eva Scow and Craig VonBerg.
