On, January 30, 2017, at Saint Peters Church in New York City, NY, an iconic jazz bassist Melbourne Robert Cranshaw was recognized and shown the appreciation and love he so deserved. His humble beginning and musical journey started in Evanston, IL. Truly loved by his family, friends, and colleagues. Bob left us with so much that it is hard to paint his story in these few lines. Bob’s signature mark of cool was “ALLRRIGHT.”! Bob Cranshaw truly touched and influenced many people across the musical spectrum. Bob sought perfection and the mark of excellence, and encouraged others to seek the same. God blessed him with a rich life and he shared it graciously.
