“Dana Robbins is Music City's saxophone MVP,with a fluent, commanding and original approachto R&B, blues, soul, rock, jazz, funk and off-the-cuff improvisation. And through it all her bold, warm tone is ever ready to shift from slow burn to utter conflagrance — whatever it takes to get to a song's emotional core." She is currently playing for DELBERT MCCLINTON and ARETHA FRANKLIN. She has also performed with CHAKA KAHN, RON ISLEY, JEFF LORBER, AL GREEN, CECE WINANS, RUFUS THOMAS, THE O'JAYS, BILL CHAMPLIN, JOHNNY LANG, JAMES BROWN, JOE SAMPLE, JEWELL, JIMMY HALL, LEROY PARNELL and STEVE CROPPER. Motown sound. Dana started studying piano at age four and saxophone when she was ten. Dana enjoyed the luxury of excellent junior high and high school band directors. Summers were spent playing in a jazz band program directed by the famous trumpet player, Louis Smith. Her father, a University of Michigan professor who loved jazz, and her mother, an accomplished classical pianist, showed her a wide variety of musical styles. She eventually studied music at the University of Michigan. Pursuing her love of jazz and blues, Dana left Michigan and enrolled in The Berklee College of Music in Boston. There she studied for two years. DANA ROBBINS
