Dubbed "a welcome presence on the creative music scene", Brooklyn-based saxophonist/composer Pete Robbins celebrates his second release as a leader, Waits & Measures, on Playscape Recordings. Robbins performs regularly as a leader in a variety of New York clubs, and American and European jazz venues. His work as a composer and bandleader recently earned him a 2006 Chamber Music America composition grant. "Several of Robbins' tunes are flag-wavers," writes critic Jim Macnie, "teeming with broad, catchy melodies. That's at odds with the very intricate lines thread together to create such themes, and that dynamic is why Centric is so intriguing."

“On this new recording,” writes critic Mark F. Turner in the liner notes to Waits and Measures Robbins' new release on Playscape Records, “Robbins clearly has an acute understanding of jazz as an art form, but more importantly he is striving to create music that moves in new directions. The group has gelled into a tight unit, creating music based on the ebb and flow of spontaneous invention. Robbins has again impressed me with his abilities as a musician, a serious composer and an artist with a vision to create music that is progressive, yet always engaging.”

“…a welcome presence on the creative music scene. … Robbins displays a keen imagination and a rousing command of his horn.”
-- David Adler, All About Jazz - New York
