The Mass Line Big Band project is the culmination of Robin Eubanks’ year of study and research as the recipient of Research Status from Oberlin College where he has been on faculty since 1998. It was Robin’s goal to write, arrange, and record for large ensemble. He has arranged compositions that he previously wrote and recorded for Dave Holland and The SF Jazz Collective, among others. Robin has also included a world premiere entitled Bill & Vera—in dedication to his parents.

During his Research Status year, Robin spent most of his time writing and composing. The Mass Line ensemble consists of 16 musicians in a standard big band format. He says: “It was my intention to make this a enjoyable and productive experience for those involved in the recording as well as an in-depth study of large ensemble writing and arranging. I included Oberlin jazz studies alumni in each section of the band along with many musicians on the current New York City jazz scene. This made the recording even more exciting to see come to life.”

This Project was made possible by Oberlin Conservatory as well as by a major donation from the Arthur and Charlotte Zitrin Foundation.
