A major jazz bassist for the past 30 years and an important musical force in the Boston area, Bruce Gertz has taught at the Berklee College of Music since 1976.

He has a long resume of performances and recordings with major artists including Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Frisell, Gil Evans, Jon Hendricks, Dave Brubeck and Joe Lovano among many others.

For his LiveStream of Feb. 6, 2021, Gertz formed a quartet with drummer Rafael Barata and two powerhouse tenor-saxophonists who also teach at Berklee: Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone.

Bruce Gertz’s post bop originals inspire heated playing with an emphasis on spontaneity at swinging tempos.

Since Bergonzi and Garzone mostly play in the Boston area, this performance gives viewers from other areas a rare chance to see the two masterful saxophonists, both of whom are heard at their best.
