Performer's Website

Pete Robbins moved to new york in september, 2002, and immediately became “a welcome presence on the creative music scene.” He leads his group at such venues as the 55 bar, Cornelia Street Café, Detour, The Bowery Poetry Club, The Tea Lounge, and others; he also plays regularly in Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Boston, tours the United States, and visits Europe with his group, featuring appearances at Denmark’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival. In addition to the group heard on Waits & Measures (Playscape Recordings, June 2006), Robbins also dabbles in more avant-garde projects with such musicians as Mark Dresser, Randy Peterson, Daniel Levin, and Mary Halvorson. After stints in Boston and Copenhagen, Robbins now resides in Brooklyn.

In addition to his performing and recording pursuits, Robbins also curated a jazz series at the Cornelia Street Café on behalf of the organization “Music for America” from February through November of 2004. M.F.A. is a partisan non-profit, promoting political and social awareness through live music. Groups featuring such jazz legends as Dave Douglas, Uri Caine, Ravi Coltrane, Bill McHenry, Rodney Green, John O’Gallagher, and others shared the bill with Robbins’ own group at each concert. In september 2004, The Village Voice recognized Robbins’ musical, promotional, and political efforts by naming him their featured jazz pick for the fall season.
