Bob Mamet is a 7-time chart-topping Jazz pianist and composer known for his uniquely melodic and vibrant style.

Bob’s three major-label albums as a solo artist and two critically acclaimed releases with his prominent Bob Mamet Trio have garnered rave reviews and world-wide success. His iconic recordings for Atlantic Records and Warner Brothers hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz charts 7 times, and today they continue to thrive on Digital Radio worldwide.

His Trio’s “London House Blues” album was an instant hit in Europe and Japan, and their collection of all original piano compositions entitled “Impromptu” earned “Bestseller” status on Amazon and iTunes.

Sold-out performances by the Bob Mamet Trio in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Paris have earned numerous reviews from top Jazz critics and writers.

The debut of the Bob Mamet Trio at the legendary Paris Jazz venue “Sunside/Sunset” prompted the French press to declare:
“What a discovery it was! ….their dichotomy of sweetness and fire, always to arrive at a beautiful osmosis.”

At Chicago’s famed Jazz Showcase, legendary Arts critic Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune wrote:
“There’s real musicality at the heart of Mamet’s work,” citing his “delicacy of tone and openly emotional style… A serious artist addressing important compositions…a silvery touch, a polished delivery and a fluency of expression.”

Jazz Times Magazine called Impromptu:
“Vibrant, sparkling…swinging and sublime”

All About Jazz raved:
“A tour-de-force display of musicianship… Mamet is on fire!”

His melodic-yet-authentic acoustic style has been well documented. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Bob a “master melody maker” and the Chicago Sun-Times calls him simply “The Natural.”

Jazz Hot Magazine said of a performance of Bob’s in Paris:
“The Pianist shows his joy of playing to a large Parisian audience
and pleasure was visible throughout the [evening] through excellent
communication he has with the audience.”

Bob Mamet has been one of the most prolific artists to be featured on Jazz Radio throughout the world and his immediately recognizable Piano is featured prominently every day on Sirius/XM satellite radio. Billboard Magazine perhaps summed it up best when it proclaimed that Bob’s “one-of-a kind sound and ability to connect with audiences sets him apart as an authentic Jazz artist for the 21st Century.”
