The Chicago Tribune has called the JAZZTECH Big Band "one of the best big bands in the country". The Chicago Sun Times characterizes the band with "hard hitting ensemble brightly crafted harmonies and expansive solos". Cadence Magazine reviews the JAZZTECH Big Band as "a band with no discernible weaknesses, one that fairly bristles with vitality and enthusiasm, that reduces even the most formidable charts and demanding unison passages to ho-hum routine".
Rob’s goal for the JAZZTECH Big Band is to promote and commission new arrangements of great jazz standards as well as original compositions by Chicago composers. The JAZZTECH Big Band does not claim to be a repertory band, however music performed by the great road bands from the likes of Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, to Woody Herman will often be played in live concerts.
