Bobby Medina

Trumpeter Bobby Medina, having apprenticed with such luminary artists as Ray Charles, Mel Torme, Poncho Sanchez, Eddie Cano and Mel Brown among others, is presently bringing his own brand of Latin influenced jazz and instrumental pop to audiences in America and Europe. I’m trying to take what I’ve learned from these great performers and mix that with the music I grew up on, Latin and jazz. With this I’ve come up with a sound that crosses over and appeals to people on many levels.

“[Between Worlds] is as sensuous and immediate in impact as it is structurally arresting and poetically satisfying – and as such, totally recommended.”
Michael Tucker, Jazz Journal
“Bobby’s trumpet playing is flawless!”
Jim Wilke, KPLU FM 88.5 Seattle
“The Cosmopolitan Pops show is a wonderful presentation!”
Susan Sagawa, Cultural Programs Manager, City of Auburn
jazzjournalist“Medina is impressive not only for his command of the trumpet and flugelhorn but also for the blues feeling often at the heart of his his solos whether improvising on traditional Latin music or on hybrid like his ‘Tulum.’”
– Doug Ramsey, International Jazz Journalist and Author

“Bobby is one of the finest talents I have ever brought in. His professionalism, incredible musicianship and ability to communicate with students made the experience very rewarding and educational for both the students and myself.” – Sean Richarz, Chair, Performing Arts Department, Bishop Blanchet High School

“ We get very little jazz education here. Bobby’s program really helped our students improve tremendously in a very short time. Hugo Alves, Artistic Director, Festival de Jazz Lagos, Portugal

Clinics & Mentoring: Educational Seminars

Bobby’s clinics are a great way to inspire students to reach their full potential and help improve the overall quality of the ensembles they play in. He brings a wealth of both academic knowledge and real life professional experience to his classes. He relates well to all ages by making everyone feel comfortable through his performance demonstrations and humorous anecdotes about the music business.

Sponsoring a clinic with Bobby is the perfect way to revitalize the spirit of your brass section, band or orchestra. In addition to this, new skills will be imparted, the basics will be reinforced and players will leave with a sense of new found determination and motivation.

Who is it for?: Programs can be adapted to fit your individual needs. Clinics can be for trumpeters, brass players or all instrumentalists. Emphasis can center on ensemble playing, jazz playing, brass technique and general musicianship.

Rates: Since Bobby’s presentations are customized to fit your individual needs, rates will vary. Bobby can spend as little as 2 hours or can include a full day plus rehearsals and concert guest artist appearance with or without his band.

For further details please contact us below to discuss what your needs are and what package will work best for you.

“BETWEEN WORLDS”

bobbymedinathecosmopolitBobby Medina’s ambitious Between Worlds project is well titled. His mother came from Mexico, his father is from the U.S., and his wife was originally from Sweden, so he has had plenty of exposure to different worlds and cultures. The title Between Worlds also applies to the wide variety of music that is featured on this release. While many of the performances are Latin jazz and utilize an orchestra, not every selection is orchestral, Latin or purely jazz. However there is a unity to the set with each performance being melodic and consistently creative. The music of “Between Worlds” deserves to be heard throughout the world.
