    The Bobby Selvaggio Quartet consists of Bobby Selvaggio on alto sax, Theron Brown on piano, Jordan McBride on bass, and Zaire Darden on drums.

    Bobby Selvaggio is one of the leading alto saxophone voices on today's jazz scene.  In the words of pianist Kenny Werner, “Bobby is among the best of players out there,” and legendary saxophonist Joe Lovano praises Bobby by calling him “one of the few young saxophonists on the scene today that captures you with his strong presence, focus, and sound.”

    Bobby, who grew up in the Cleveland area, earned his Bachelor of Music in Music Performance from Kent State University.  He eventually moved to New York City and earned a Masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music. While in New York, Bobby studied with  Joe Lovano, Bobby Watson, Dick Oatts, and Maria Schneider.

    After living in New York City and gigging around town at places like the Vanguard, Smalls, and Birdland for four years, Bobby decided to move back to Cleveland with his family. He has dedicated himself to keeping jazz alive in Cleveland and his passion for jazz education has led him to serve as Director of Jazz Studies at Kent State University.

    In addition to his work in jazz education, Bobby continues to expand his discography. His most recent recording is Short Stories (Origin Records, 2014) featuring Aaron Goldberg on the piano, which follows Way Of Being (Arabesque Records, 2013), Grass Roots Movement (Arabesque Records, 2011) and Modern Times (Arabesque Records, 2009).  Modern Times featured Kenny Werner on piano and Sean Jones on trumpet. Bobby’s Unspoken Dialogue (Playscape Recordings, 2007), also featured Kenny Werner, as well as Jamey Haddad on drums, Ben Street on bass, and Paul Tynan on trumpet.

    In addition to playing alto saxophone, Bobby also plays soprano saxophone, alto clarinet, flute, and is a composer, arranger, and jazz clinician.

    Blu Monsoon – the freshest, most original band in Ohio - is a group of talented, award-winning, young professional musicians who have come together to create original music that has broad appeal without being cliché. They tailor their sound for any situation from an outdoor concert using multiple keyboards, bass, drum kit and guitar to intimate club, winery or restaurant featuring just piano, bass and cajon (drum box). They also bring a unique flair to private events. Their following continues to grow with over 600 Facebook fans and an email list of over 100.

    Blu Monsoon was formed in early 2012 at the end of a local cover band that included Mike Schirch (keys, composer, producer) and Jeff Jeric (bass). They immediately sought out Adam Hradisky (drums) who played with them in the Brecksville High School jazz band where both Adam and Mike won the Louis Armstrong award in consecutive years.

    Much of 2012 was spent writing, practicing, and making their first recording, At 21 and Daisy. In 2013 they released their second album, Hot Tub Maintenance, which is available at gigs, by mail, iTunes and CD Baby. Their most recent release, an EP titled Three, came out in September 2015.
