Many Albums of Barry Schmaltz! 

If you go here, to

you will discover many, many audio recordings of Barry Schmaltz and his friends.  Free-associating philosophers and poets, imbued with madcap civility and a broad perspective on many subjects, Barry Schmaltz, Guy Tromboni, Downbeat, and many others invite you to join them as they make it all up on the spot, right before your ears! 

Triosphere Live! Now viewable as well as listenable! 

Here we are, Gaku Takanashi on bass; John Romagnoli on drums; and myself, Robin Radus on piano, finally embracing the name and identity of Triosphere: New York's premier performing and recording jazz trio.  A pretentious mantle, to be sure, but the output speaks for itself: elegantly performed with a nonchalance born of long practice, this music ingratiates and delights the listener with subtle interplays of humor and expressions of genuine delight, not only apparent in the notes that are played, but more…Read more

Robin Radus: Painfully Lame 

ROBIN RADUS: Painfully Lame (2014)

It's here!  The brand new concept album that's guaranteed to thrill and delight.  I suggest that you have lots of psychotropic herbs to ingest or inhale for this one, because it practically insists upon it!  Others are picking up on this suggestion; look:

New Feature - Just Jazz!

Here for the first time! 

It's the Random Music Generator! Listen to any one of hundreds of tracks from this site.  And let me tell you, there's a lot of strange stuff on this site!  I just listened back to a few random samplings myself, and it's pretty avant-garde.  So if you're hiring me for piano work, don't get the impression that my repertoire includes everything you might hear here.  

Coming Now! 

Now you can hear new tracks from our new album with jazz vocalist Debbie Hayman and my trio, featuring Gaku Takanashi and John Romagnoli.  Also, check out Cleve Douglass and myself jamming in the park this summer!  Soon I'll put up my schedule and make it easier for anyone to contact me.  Thanks for listening!
