Bruce Katz

Bruce Katz occupies a unique space where blues, jazz, rock, soul, and the many aspects of Americana all collide into a style of original instrumental music all his own. He is as comfortable playing "soul-jazz" on the Hammond organ as he is playing 1930's style stride piano or the meanest slow blues. Besides leading the Bruce Katz Band, Bruce is currently playing regularly with Gregg Allman, John Hammond, The Organiks and performing with other artists as well. Bruce was also honored as a 2008 Nominee for the Blues Music Award for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year", selected by the Blues Foundation. Over the past twenty five years, Bruce has been an in-demand sideman as well as leading his own band

Bruce Katz: Solo Ride

Read "Solo Ride" reviewed by Doug Collette


On Solo Ride, Bruce Katz posits himself as a stylist par excellence, curator of a perennial genre that deserves preservation in the musical landscape of America. And while it's something of a surprise to see him release a solo album, given the self-effacing demeanor he's displayed in his otherwise broad and varied collaborative experience (with Gregg ...

Let's Party: Anthony Wilson Trio, Joel Frahm & Bruce Katz, James Carter et al.

Read "Let's Party: Anthony Wilson Trio, Joel Frahm & Bruce Katz, James Carter et al." reviewed by J Hunter


Just because summer is long gone doesn't mean the other three seasons have to be a marathon of dreariness. The calendar's got plenty of reasons to party--Christmas, New Year's Eve, or (for college students) the odd Tuesday that needs freshening up. It's only logical that parties need party music, so here are three “musical guests," all ...

Joel Frahm / Bruce Katz: Project A

Read "Project A" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Frahm, a superlative saxophonist who has worked with Maynard Ferguson, Brad Mehldau and Kurt Rosenwinkel, is joined by ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
