Bob Wolfman with his mentor/lifelong friend, legendary guitarist Larry Coryell, the godfather of jazz/rock fusion.
Bob hates being pigeon holed into only one genre, an extremely versatile performing/recording artist who started doing studio work when he was in high school in New York City at the age of fifteen. Working as a studio guitarist for almost every record label in Manhattan, Bob contributed tasty solos and fills for many well known singer's recordings. Bob enjoyed playing on hundreds of recordings in the styles of R&B, Blues, Rock, Jazz, Funk, and even Gospel. It should be noted, that Bob loves Jazz, Jazz/Blues and has his roots deeply influenced by his two mentors Larry Coryell, and Joe Beck.
Bob spent 4-6 nights a week at just about every single music venue in and around New York City. Jazz clubs, recording studios, rehearsal studios, and concert halls sitting in as a guest jamming, performing, recording, or enjoying great music with the biggest names in the music industry. The Fillmore East, the Beacon Theatre, Avery Fisher Hall, Shafer Festival Concerts in Central Park, the Capital Theatre, as well as dozens of college concerts were Bob's stomping grounds. It should be mentioned that Bob's all time favorite musical indulgence was being invited to sit in and play with all his heroes/mentors at all the Jazz Clubs in New York City. All the aforementioned served as an extremely rich, dynamic, and inspiring educational experience which helped Bob become an accomplished Jazz artist.
Bob has performed and/or recorded with the likes of Larry Coryell, Chick Corea, Grover Washington Jr., Joe Beck, Robben Ford, Sonny Landreth, Victor Bailey, Tommy Campbell, Jimmy Earl, Toni Lynn Washington, Kenwood Dennard, Arlen Roth, and James Montgomery.
