With Safe and Loved, Bobby Streng delivers his most personal record to date - six tracks written for and dedicated to his daughters. This instrumental music is tuneful, melodic, and shows his obsessive attention to the importance of the arrangement.

Bobby Streng's large jazz ensemble The House Big Band is the largest ensemble offering from Ann Arbor saxophonist, composer, and bandleader Bobby Streng. Like his other groups (Saxomble, Liquid Street, and the Bobby Streng Group), the House Big Band will feature his own energetic fusion of jazz, Latin, and funk. This seventeen-piece ensemble that Streng has assembled could easily double as The Southeast Michigan All-Star Band. Members hail from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Paul Keller Orchestra, Scott Gwinnell Jazz Orchestra, as well as the jazz faculties of the University of Michigan and University of Toledo.
Bobby Streng's ensemble Saxomble fuses his backgrounds in classical, funk, jazz, and rock into an exciting live experience fueled by the sound and improvisation of a powerful five man saxophone front. While the ensemble that he has assembled is tight and well-rehearsed, it is the uniqueness of each player’s voice that will impress audiences most.
