Bob Sheppard

An extraordinarily diverse career made him a first call musician in the realms of jazz, pop and the studio worlds. Multi-woodwind specialist Bob Sheppard has always let his array of saxophones, flutes and clarinets do the talking. Superstar names highlight his resume, and jazz critics have been raving about him as both a sideman and leader for years. But such praise is simply a byproduct of Sheppard´s years of steady work and dedication to his craft. A tradition that continues on his latest release "Close Your Eyes" at the BFM Jazz label.

Sheppard has been a steadfast member of the Billy Childs Ensembles and the Peter Erskine trio for over a decade. He has toured with Steely Dan and Boz Scaggs and performed with James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Queen Latifah and with Joni Mitchell on her 2007 Grammy-winning Shine. He also played on a live studio video with Mitchell and Herbie Hancock
