We’re delighted to welcome legendary multi-Grammy and Emmy award-winning bassist Robert Hurst

In a career spanning more than 30 years, Robert has played a key role in the music of artists including Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Harry Connick Jr., Terence Blanchard, Tony Williams, Nicholas Payton, Sting, Carl Allen, and the legendary Pharaoh Sanders.

Currently on stage with Ravi Coltrane, Orrin Evans, Chris Davis, and Diana Krall, Robert is also a highly respected and well-recognized composer, having produced seven acclaimed albums as a leader as well as composing for and appearing on over 30 major motion film and video soundtracks, including “Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen” and “Good Night and Good Luck.” You may also recognize Robert Hurst as the inaugural bassist in the house band of “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno for eight seasons, from 1992 to 1999.

In late 2024, Robert's 'BeBob' Records will release an archival studio recording of the "This That and the Third" project with Robert, Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland, and Jeff "Tain" Watts. To continue this project, 30 years on, Robert returns to the studio to record new music with the quartet, adding pianist Ian Finkelstein, with the album set for release in early 2025 and touring the USA and Europe soon after.
