International Jazz Masters Series

Bruce Barth Trio

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 12 th May 2023

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Bruce Barth is one of today's most celebrated mainstream Jazz pianists. He is best known for his story telling approach to soloing. As a composer he is renowned for writing pieces which span everything from gem like ballads, intricate musical poems, themes deeply drenched in the blues, to classic hard bop melodies with exciting rhythmic movement. His playing encompasses the full range of expression, from rich delicate sensitivity, all the way to orchestral levels of intensity.

“one of the best pianists in town, period,”

Village Voice New York

Tonight the focus is on the Trio, and will premiere new compositions and some specially arranged standards.

The other two members of the trio are Mark Hodgson and Stephen Keogh, who together with Bruce, have, for the last two decades, played together and toured worldwide as a rhythm section in the bands of many great artists including Charles McPherson, Jerry Bergonzi and Rene Marie. 

This show will be a live recording for a future trio album.

We very much hope you will join us to be part of a special evening at the club.
