Bruce Barth

Back in the studio for Savant Records, the versatile pianist with monster chops, Bruce Barth displays those traits which caused the Village Voice to proclaim that him "one of the best pianists in town, period." His unique, Monk-tinged voicing, big tone and propulsive rhythmic drive sets his sound and style apart from any other pianist.  Joined here once again by vibist Steve Nelson and with trumpet/flugel phenom Terell Stafford on hand, Bruce offers a stimulating set list of a few standards alongside his always interesting originals. The colorful drummer, Montez Coleman and the dynamic bassist Vicente Archer round out the rhythm section and the result is thoughtful, driving and contemporary jazz in the best sense of the word by five of the finest players on the scene today.
