Hammond B-3 Organist and pianist Bruce Katz is well known for his original and spirited take on blues, jazz and all forms of American roots music. He has recorded and toured with Ronnie Earl, John Hammond, Levon Helm, Duke Robillard, Jimmy Witherspoon, Little Milton and many others, while also leading his own group. He is also a professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
This performance will feature Bruce mainly on the Hammond B-3, with his organ group, consisting of Chris Vitarello on guitar and Ralph Rosen on drums, and special guest Eric Mingus on bass and vocals.
“Bruce Katz is a spectacular talent. He’s a brilliant composer and arranger who uses uncommon and unique musical intelligence to redefine jazz and blues far beyond the pale of the accepted definitions of keyboard competence. Whether on piano or organ, when you hear Bruce Katz you know it’s him, unmistakably and uniquely.” –Larry Coryell
“This man is as good as it gets. One of the greatest keyboard artists I’ve ever heard.” –John Hammond
