Tobin Mueller

Tobin Mueller is a composer, playwright and interpretive pianist living in Connecticut, just outside New York City (his former home). His musical compositions range from post-bop Impressionist Jazz to Progressive Rock to Neo-classical to Broadway musicals.

Most recently, he has completed a 2-volume set of reimagined Jazz Classics, "Standard Deviations". A tour de force of arranging and musicianship, players include: 3-time Grammy winner Paul Nelson (guitar), 4-time collaborator Woody Mankowski (saxes), drummers Lamar Moore & Mike Nappi, Kenny Cash (bass/production), more. 33 tunes covered, 123-minute double album.

Perviously, Tobin has recorded several solo piano albums, jazz ensemble sessions and collaborations with musicians from around the world. He moves from genre to genre with ease, drawing from varied influences and eras. His music is restless yet beautiful, an eclectic style that synthesizes and originates.

Six of Tobin's musical dramas have seen Manhattan stages. Several songs from his off-broadway play "Creature" have found their way into recordings offered through CDBaby, including jazz renditions from his award-winning "Rain Bather." His science fiction musical "Dreamless" formed the basis of his experimental progressive rock concept album, "Audiocracy: Revolution's Son." Songs from his off-broadway "Robin Hood" and "Runners In A Dream" have been included in some of his vocal/pop albums (see below). Tobin has also written several books, poetry collections, video games, blogs and reviews.

In 1994, Tobin was inducted into the United Nations' Global 500 Roll of Honor for his work with youth worldwide in the environmental movement. He has written a series of youth musicals for his touring troupe, CenterStage Productions, most notably: To Save The Planet.
