Since his arrival in New York from his native Philadelphia, Robin Eubanks has established himself as one of the finest trombonists of his generation. Currently splitting his time between Elvin Jonesí Jazz Machine, Dave Hollandís quintet and his own groups, Robinís commitment to education puts further demand on his busy schedule.

Recently appointed Assistant Professor of Jazz Trombone at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, he is also adjunct faculty at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, teaches privately in New York and has taught and delivered seminars at universities and colleges throughout the world. Robin is also a national clinician for Yamaha Musical instruments and has been pioneering the use of electronics for the trombone with tremendous results.

As a member of the famed Eubanks family, Robinís musical development has been organic. His uncle Ray Bryant has been prominent on the Jazz scene for decades, and his mother has been a music educator for more than 30 years. At the age of 8, Robin began playing the trombone and studied theory, harmony and arranging through high school and college, graduating cum laude from the University of the Arts.

In 1999, Robin and his brother Kevin (musical director for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) were Honorees of Philadelphiaís Mellon Jazz Festival. And youngest brother Duane is one of the brightest young trumpeters on the Jazz scene.

Robin has also toured and recorded with such diverse musicians as the Mingus Big Band, the Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and Barbra Streisand.

Heís performed on several television shows and specials, including The Tonight Show featuring Jay Leno, Saturday Night Live, the Grammy Awards and Motown at the Apollo, and has worked on several projects for Broadway and film.

His other Jazz accomplishments include a stint as musical director for Art Blakeyís Jazz Messengers, as well as composing for and performing with McCoy Tynerís Big Band and Slide Hamptonís Jazz Masters. One of Robinís greatest honors was being featured as soloist, composer and arranger on his personal idol, J.J. Johnsonís Grammy-nominated recording, "The Brass Orchestra."
