Robin Eubanks

The subject of this month’s Players, Robin Eubanks is a versatile trombonist with major credits to his name.

Specializing in jazz, funk, odd-meters, rock, Latin and “various combinations of those that I compose in my own music,” Eubanks keeps himself sharp with “a regular warm-up that covers all of the basics of playing: long tones, lip slurs, tonguing exercises, etc.”

In this interview, Eubanks shares his perspectives on teaching at Oberlin College.
