Arranger and woodwind performer Bob Parsons grew up in St. James, Minnesota. After receiving an M.A. in composition from the University of Minnesota, Parsons moved to New York City in 1991, where he was involved in composition, arranging, and production work for major label recording projects, jingles, and film scores. Parsons provided in-studio arranging services for Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, John Scofield, the Brecker Brothers, and many others. Since returning to Minnesota, Bob Parsons joined the Acme Jazz Company, which features his arrangements, giving him a forum for his personal eclectic style.
