Musician

Gerry Bryant

Born:

Gerry has been described by many as a renaissance man. Multi-talented Gerry graduated cum laude from both Phillips Andover Academy and Harvard, and received his graduate degrees from UCLA. His musical influences range from classical masters Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, to jazz legends Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington, to contemporary pianists Keith Jarrett and Ramsey Lewis. He describes his music as “Third Stream”, a term coined in 1957 by composer Gunther Schuller to describe a musical genre that is a synthesis of classical music and jazz. Gerry has had extensive classical training since childhood, then later he began broadening his musical vocabulary by immersing himself in many other musical genres.

In addition to the two albums of timely and timeless original music and jazz standards featuring his jazz group, PocketWatch, Gerry has recorded seven primarily solo piano albums of classical music and of uniquely arranged and reimagined standards

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!
