Bob Gluck

Pianist Bob Gluck is a pianist and writer whose repertoire spans jazz, live electronic music, and avant-garde concert music. Karl Ackermann (All About Jazz) wrote: “As a composer and player, Gluck ranks with the likes of Andrew Hill and Cecil Taylor… [his 2011 FMR CD with Michael Bisio and Dean Sharp] “Something Quiet” is completely original, artistically spontaneous, and intellectually challenging.” Jazz Review describes his subsequent FMR recording “Returning” as displaying “an intensity and sensitivity that is spellbinding.” The latest of Gluck's nine recordings are “Infinite Spirit: Revisiting Music of the Mwandishi Band” (FMR, 2016; with Billy Hart, Eddie Henderson, and Christopher Dean Sullivan), and two sets of duets with, respectively, fellow pianist Aruan Ortiz (”Textures and Pulsations,” 2012) and saxophonist Andrew Sterman (”Tropelets,” 2014), both on Ictus Records

Read "Early Morning Star" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On this release, pianist Bob Gluck mixes the realms of classical music and jazz in interesting ways. The formal, declarative music produced by Gluck, clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and vocalist Andrea Wolper is given flow and earthiness by the rhythmic pull of bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Tani Tabbal. The front-line combination fluidly rises and ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
