He also performed and recorded there with many other great jazz men such as Moe Koffman and Ed Bickert.

Since moving to Calgary in 1986 Bob has played with the Bob Erlendson Quintet, the Eric Friedenberg Big Band, and Bobâs own Quintet Record High which has been an outlet for his original compositions.

Bobâs writing is inspired by his association with the legendary valve trombonist and composer/arranger Bob Bobmeyer whom Bob has studied with in New York city off and on since 1986. Bob also performed with Brookmeyer as a soloist at the Edmonton Jazz Festival.

Internationally Bob travelled the USA in 1970 with Paul Anka:worked in New York city and in 1990 toured Sweden and Germany with Stockholmâs hottest jazz band Panta Rei under the direction of Erik Lundmark.
