Forestone Reeds

I'm saxophonist Bob Bartosik. I've played sax for 35 years- professionally for 30 years. I provide music for San Diego events - from solo sax and sax/piano duos on up to a full jazz quintet with bass, drums and trumpet added. My most requested combo is a sax / piano duo.

My 2008 CD "Double Triple" was nominated for Best Jazz Album at the San Diego Music Awards and I am currently working on another recording project.

I have also worked on soundtracks including the opening theme to Hubert Selby Jr.: It/ll Be Better Tomorrow CD Cover

Sax / Piano (or Guitar) / Bass /Drums Quartet MP3 Samples:
      Watch What Happens
      What She Said (title theme from the film Hubert Selby Jr.: It/ll Be Better Tomorrow)

I play timeless classic jazz tunes made popular by musicians and composers such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Ben Webster, Stan Getz, Lester Young, Charles Mingus, Thelonius Monk, Duke Ellington, Rodgers and Hart, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, George Gerswhin and more.

I run with a circle of talented musicians dedicated to keeping "The Great American Songbook" alive. The joy of this music played by skilled players that love the material shines through each time we play. I feel very fortunate to have found my calling.

I also work professionally composing original music for film and multimedia productions as well as mixing audio for TV and film projects.
