Brian Bromberg is considered to be one of the world’s most groundbreaking and diverse bassists of our time, pushing the barriers of the acoustic and electric bass to their limits.
Commonly using as many as 10 or more basses on his recordings, using different tunings, string configurations, acoustic basses, electric basses, piccolo basses etc., Bromberg has taken the bass and truly turned it into a vehicle for him to make music, write melodies and be the lead melodic voice as well as the rhythmic foundation of the music.
The bass has become an extension of the music inside him, and he has used all these different basses to let that music sing.
Bromberg’s latest CD is Thicker than Water featuring the single “Minneapolis, 1987” that is at trip back in time to that locale. If you like Morris Day and the Time, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Prince and MC Hammer, you will love this track.
Grammy-nominated saxophonist Everette Harp’s soulful and trademark blend of jazz, R&B, funk and pop have made him a favorite among fans, fellow musicians and critics alike. He has left an indelible imprint with his unique muscular and soulful sound.
From hard-working teen in the 1970’s to A-list session player and guitarist/musical director in the present, Ray Fuller has earned the title of musician’s musician. For three decades he has honed his skills in the service of a constellation of superstar artists.
Tony Moore’s style and rich versatility have led him to become one of L.A.’s most in-demand touring and recording drummers with a growing list of legendary and superstar artist credits.
Pianist and Grammy-nominated arranger and pianist Tom Zink has been performing for over 30 years with a bevy of top-flight jazz and pop artists.
The Berks Horns are Mike Anderson on saxophone, Rob Diener on trumpet and John Loos on trombone.
