Bob Chadwick Trio
The Bob Chadwick Trio features Bob Chadwick, flutes, with Ray Wilson on guitar and Andrew Gordon on upright bass. Bob is an accomplished flautist and band leader, performing in the Houston area and nationally for over 35 years.
The Trio's repertoire includes an impressive collection of bossa nova and Latin American tunes along with familiar jazz standards.
Bob's use of bass flute brings a fresh voice to the classic Brazilian bossa nova. The velvety earthy sound of the bass flute evokes a mystery and depth that comes to life with his technical mastery and intuitive sensibilities.
The ensemble provides a welcome interlude of musical entertainment that is both soothing and lively.

Review in Houston Jazz Scene
"Chadwick's playing is especially interesting because he has achieved great technical proficiency, grasping the essence of the more obscure modalities, and has not sacrificed spirit, emotion, soul and swing. He succeeds in using all aspects of music technique as tools, not end-products. This ability has contributed to his being repeatedly voted "Best Jazz Instrumentalist" in the annual Public News Reader's Poll."
