Bob Stuart CDs

Hello, Folks
Here is something you might not know about. One of our local heroes, and an old ship-and-stage-mate of mine, Bob Stuart, has lost his ability to perform these days, much to our collective sorrow.
However, he has amassed an impressive collection of his own recordings over the years, with a variety of material from traditional to contemporary and his own originals.
We are offering these CDs for sale here until he gets his own website. I am happy to think that some of you can get to enjoy the lovely voice and the lovely man who has enriched our soundscape here for so many years.
~ Gordon Bok

Together Again For the First Time

Gordon Bok and Bob Zentz - Together Again For the First Time

"In late March 1979, Gordon and I were on an odyssey of exploration, friendship, teaching, and learning. We tried to create a blueprint of the mystical “business” called “music”, but in reality, you can’t distill what we do down to a formula… it’s more like alchemy of old, lost to time but alive in our imagining.

Two old friends are now privileged to revisit it again in our later years. As the saying goes, you had to be there… but if you weren’t, you can be now."

                          ~Bob Zentz, 2017
