Trevor Robertson @trevorrobertson

Double bass

About

I am a New York City-based bassist, originally from Troy, MI. I studied double bass with Paul Keller and Larry Hutchinson at Wayne State University, located in Detroit, MI. I’ve performed alongside Joshua Redman, Jason Moran, Ali Jackson, Takuya Kuroda, Stacy Dillard, Duane Eubanks, Spike Wilner, and others. I am passionate about composing music that speaks to the experiences of life, and about utilizing the double bass’s full potential as both a supporting and leading instrument.

Music

I typically play a wide range of genres in the jazz idiom: bebop, hard bop, post-bop, avant-garde, free jazz, Latin jazz, trad jazz, and manouche/Gypsy jazz. My original compositions draw on the traditions of jazz, Western classical, and Yoruba/Lucumi worship music. My compositions tend to focus on themes of spirituality, grief, love, and rebirth.
