Jazz pianist and composer Bruce Barth has been sharing his music with listeners the world over for more than two decades. Deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, his music reflects both the depth and breadth of his life and musical experiences. In addition to traveling widely performing his own music, he has also performed with revered jazz masters, as well as collaborated with leading musicians of his own generation. And most notably, his performances feature material from his large book of very powerful and imaginative original compositions, written in a voice that is both deeply personal and expressive. In a recent review in the Newark Star-Ledger, Zan Stewart writes "No one sounds quite like Barth. His solos are characterized by robust swing, his ability to tell a story, and by his rich, beguiling sound."

Bruce has performed on over one hundred recordings and movie soundtracks, including ten as a leader. He is equally at home playing solo piano (American Landscape on Satchmo Jazz Records), leading an all-star septet (East and West on MaxJazz), and composing for a variety of ensembles. His trio has recorded live at the legendary Village Vanguard in New York City, and he recently released a new DVD, Live at Café del Teatre, on Quadrant, recorded live at the Lleida Jazz Festival in Catalunia.

"Bruce is a great musician ... a force to be reckoned with."   – Terence Blanchard

"One of the best pianists in town, period."   – Village Voice

"At the piano, no one sounds quite like Barth. His solos are characterized by robust swing, by his ability to tell a story, and by his rich, beguiling sound.   – Newark Star-Ledger

"Pianist Barth digs deep to his true soul in the keyboard language….. self-assured and full of ideas…..."   – Downbeat

"The Pianist Bruce Barth brought a lot of resources to the bandstand."   – The New York Times

"…..a pianist of enormous ability…..Barth plays with an understated intensity, swathed in graceful technique and cradled in modernist harmonies."   – Jazziz
