About Brian Bromberg
A very versatile acoustic and electric bassist capable of playing straight-ahead jazz, funk, and fusion, Brian Bromberg has built a respected career playing with a bevy of luminaries and issuing his own highly regarded albums. Influenced by the virtuosic finger-tapping style of Stanley Jordan, Bromberg sometimes sounds like three bassists at once during his often-thunderous solos. It's a talent that found him part of Stan Getz's group at age 19. Since then, he has been a valuable sideman with artists like Dave Grusin, Billy Cobham, Michael Bublé, and others. He recorded his first albums as a leader in the '80s with dates like 1988's Basses Loaded with Ernie Watts and has since balanced session work with recording his own varied dates, such as 1991's It's About Time: The Acoustic Project, 2010's Bromberg Plays Hendrix, and 2021's A Little Driving Music.
