As a young Bob Toabe played along the rocky New
England seacoast it was as though the salt air
and ocean waves filled him with music, imbuing
his creativity with a natural song and rhythm.
Even as a child his prodigious musical
improvisation, rich in emotional content, brought
recognition and praise from music teachers and
concert audiences alike. As an early adolescent
he ventured from the piano to the study of wind,
voice, strings, and a wide assortment of
percussion instruments. It was in the theatre
however where, as the youngest member of the
Boston-based Performing Arts Repertory Co., he
developed a potently creative music, stage, and
performance style. By high school the ever
industrious musician found himself forming a
variety of eclectic improvisation groups. His
sound was influence by a broad range of
contemporary jazz, classical, and international
music. He listened to Keith Jarrett, Chic Corea,
and Coltrane. But more than anything else it was
his early personal meetings with McCoy Tyner and
Pharaoh Sanders that moved and inspired the
direction of his music.
Today his original and fluid piano style captures
concert audiences with a sound that is rich,
sweet, and hypnotic. He can be heard regularly at THE RITZ CARLTON, Boston Commons & at the Boston Le Meridian hotel. Bobs’ current release HOPE & COMFORT was sponsored by a very impressed fan who financed the entire project after hearing him perform only two pieces! The CD is an alluring mix; which alternates between on-the-spot improvisations and original pieces.
"What I want most (in my music) is deep and
free-flowing emotional content. I want my
audience to move with me over the keyboard...letting the music flow through us like
a soft sweet breeze, like an ocean wave...seeking
expression of our deepest needs, our essential
