There was an era in American popular culture when pop music was something completely different than what it has become today; when an outstanding instrumentalist could be a pop star no less than a vocalist; when even headlining singers were expected to be complete musicians and instrumentalists were expected to be entertainers.
YO! BOBBY is evidence that this performance ethic hasn’t entirely been lost to time. The members of the band revel in the joy that comes from the combination of jazz, showmanship and the Great American Songbook. The band lineup includes saxophonists Anat Cohen and Joel Frahm, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, keyboardists Jason Lindner and Manuel Valera, who share duties on various keyboards (piano and Wurlitzer electric piano), bassist Barak Mori and drummer Daniel Freedman. Scott Robinson (Baritone Sax) and Vic Juris (Guitar) make guest appearances
