Spotlight on Rob Schwimmer

A veteran player who has worked with beloved legends like Stevie Wonder, Simon and Garfunkel, Wayne Shorter, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, as well as celebrated young contemporary artists such as Esperanza Spalding and Gotye, Schwimmer leads us on an organic and musically rich journey from the pensive to the thrilling, with many musical ports of call in between.

Rob Schwimmer performs a solo concert on piano, theremin and Haken Continuum Sunday, March 10 at 3 pm at the Saranac Methodist Church on Route 3 in Saranac, New York. The program includes works by Mussorgsky, Scriabin, Strayhorn, and the Beatles plus original compositions and improvisations for all three instruments; theme and variations on standards, classics and movie soundtracks—overall, a healthy dose of mystery. General admission at the door: general $20; seniors and students $15. For further information telephone 518-293-7613, e-mail or visit

Schwimmer’s recent album “Heart of Hearing,” named one of the “Best Jazz Albums of 2019” by Fred Kaplan (Slate), presents a suite of solo piano pieces showcasing his dynamic mastery of the instrument. Schwimmer’s original compositions and his unique take on the Great American Songbook (through jazz, Americana, and fascinating movie soundtracks) leads the listener on a multi-faceted musical adventure through the avant-garde, classical music, and the unclassifiable.
