Robin Eubanks was born to a musical family and began studying music at eight. Later, he took up theory, harmony, composition, and arranging at the University of the Arts, in his hometown of Philadelphia. After settling in New York, he soon rubbed elbows with jazz greats like Art Blakey, Dave Holland, and McCoy Tyner, and pop and rock giants Barbra Streisand and the Rolling Stones. Eubanks also leads two groups, EB3 and Mental Images, and currently performs with the SF Jazz Collective. His first album, Different Perspectives, came out in 1988. Since then, the artist has released a handful of recordings, including Wake Up Call (1997), Get 2 It (2001), and Live, Vol.1 (2007). A natural educator, he also teaches trombone at Oberlin College.
