He has released five recordings as a leader and the most recent, entitled “Rob Thorsen Trio Live,” features the phenomenal talents of drummer Duncan Moore and pianist Joshua White, the 2nd place winner of the Thelonius Monk 2012 piano competition. In addition to performing with his own quartet he has also created “Jazz an American Art Form” – a hugely successful jazz educational program that has been presented to over 18,000 students this year.

“When I began playing upright bass, the fact that I felt the sound as much as heard it had a profound effect on me. I was hooked for life.”
