Bob Mann

Bob Mann has been a studio giant for decades......producing, arranging and playing guitar with Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Steve Tyrell and many more.   Bob recently acquired a road worthy Jim Hall model to replace his L-5, which had been destroyed by one too many airline handlers.  

Bob performed with the guitar for the first time at the Blue Note this week, with Steve Tyrell.  Bob has co-produced and arranged all of Tyrell's nine albums and now that he is an "empty nester", has joined Tyrell on the road as well.   Tyrell has taken over the spot that Bobby Short used to have at the Carlyle Hotel and performs there for 9 weeks a year every holiday season.

It is a pleasure to welcome Bob to our roster of artists.  Thanks to Craig Snyder at CR Guitars for turning Bob onto Sadowsky archtops!
