Album Notes
Bob Habib is a professional percussionist living in Chesapeake, VA that has been performing and teaching percussion for over 20 years. His educational background includes degrees from Morgan State University, in Baltimore, and Thomas Edison State College, in New Jersey. He is known as one of today's most versatile drummers and performs with several groups in the Hampton Roads area. He is the drummer for "Against All Odds", a contemporary jazz group and plays kit for "B-3 Fusion", a high powered Hammond organ fusion trio. He is currently on the Percussion Department staff of the Armed Forces Schoold of Music teaching private percussion lessons and Master Classes. Over the years, he has been fortunate to have opportunities to perform with Wycliffe Gordon (Wynton Marsalis Band), the late Frank Mantooth, The Ojay's, Doug Miller (Count Basie Orchestra), Kathy Kosins, Louis Shatti, The Augusta Jazz Project, The Capitol Quartet and the Augusta Symphony and Opera Companies. In the Spring of 2006, Bob was a featured clinician and performer for the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival.
His debut solo album "Surrounded by Greatness" features 18 of the best musicians in the nation and features a variety of styles and genres. Bob is the only player that plays on every song, as he revolves his cast of superior musicians around the genres that showcase their talents the best. From Hammond B-3 organ fusion to straight ahead jazz, this album will satisfy even the most finicky musical pallet!

surrounded by Greatness
I gave a copy to each of my sons in law and they all loved it. They are looking forward to the next CD.


Great tunes and great variety!
This album really showcases some great musicians. I really like the straight ahead swing tracks. They really swing!

Ryan Knight

Great arrangements, awesome solos and nice variety
Bob asked me to play on this CD project and I was very honored to be apart of it. Unfortunately, as recording goes, you don`t always get a chance to hear the final product for several weeks or even months after the session...It was great to hear the product in a complete form and actually listen to everyone`s solos. There are some REALLY nice ideas and cool licks I`ll be stealing from all the players on here! Habib is a killer percussionist...
