About Bob Stewart

Over the last 40 years Bob Stewart has established himself as both an innovative tuba player and equally creative jazz educator.  In addition to embracing the tuba’s historical position as the original bass instrument in jazz, Mr. Stewart’s focus on reintroducing the Tuba into a contemporary band setting has encouraged many tuba players and band leaders to explore this approach.

As a band leader, recording artist, and featured soloist Mr. Stewart’s playing has been featured on over 80 recordings.  He has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Gil Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Charlie Haden, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Carla Bley, Wynton Marsalis, Jason Moran, Lester Bowie, Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill,  Arthur Blythe, Jimmy Heath, Frank Foster, David Murray, Chaka Khan, Dap Kings, Aretha Franklin to name a few.

About PUBLIQuartet

Dubbed “independent-minded” by The New Yorker, PUBLIQuartet’s creative programming lends a fresh perspective to the Classical music scene. PQ’s innovative programs span the classical canon, contemporary works, original compositions, and open-form improvisations that expand the techniques and aesthetic of the traditional string quartet.

Founded in 2010, PUBLIQuartet is dedicated to presenting new works for the string quartet. PQ was selected as the Concert Artists Guild’s New Music/New Places Ensemble at the 2013 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition, winning their 2013 Sylvia Ann Hewlett Adventurous Artist Prize. PQ received the 2015 CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming for outstanding and innovative approaches to contemporary classical, jazz, and world chamber music and in April 2015, sold-out their debut recital at Carnegie Hall.
