Best known to jazz fans for his productive associations with Freddie Hubbard, Billy Childs, Chick Corea and the Akiyoshi/Tabackin big band, saxophonist Bob 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 brought his diverse talents to more recent performances with James Taylor, Natalie Cole and Queen Latifah and most notably with the legendary Joni Mitchell on her 2007 Grammy-winning, Shine. Recording credits include pop icons Rickie Lee Jones, Rod Stewart, Randy Newman and Stevie Wonder. You can occasionally catch Sheppard soloing on the hit TV show American Idol. Close Your Eyes is his latest release as an artist and is the debut CD for the BFM Jazz label. We look forward to having him back leading his fine mainstream musicians.
