Performer, Composer, Improviser
Bobb Fantauzzo has developed a unique voice on the Native American style flute with music that ranges from foot tapping and head bopping to soothing and meditative. It is the feel of contemporary jazz voiced through the dulcet tonalities of wooden flutes. It is sometimes jazz, sometimes not-jazz. It is, what he calls, JazZen.
His versatility has afforded him the opportunity to perform with noted musicians in a wide range of genres; from R. Carlos Nakai to Delfeayo Marsalis to the Violent Femmes.
“... the integration of an almost prayerful melodicism suggestive of Charles Lloyd with a more forward-thrusting, free-wheeling improvisational approach that echoes Coltrane, Davis, Shorter, and Coleman.” - Jazz Police
