New! 
Brian Bromberg (Set 2)

Brian's solo career began with the release of his first album A New Day in 1986. Right from the beginning with this first release, critics started noticing that Brian was different, doing things with the bass that had not been done before. Bromberg's reputation was starting to spread throughout the world. Smooth jazz radio took notice as well, breaking Brian into the format and charting with his first record. Brian Bromberg hasn’t released an album in the U.S. since 2012…a fact that might not have been cause for concern if you know that at one point he released three albums in one year. Every man deserves a break. However, once you realize that this chameleon with over 20 projects in his catalog recently had reason to believe that he might never play music again, you understand the gravity of his latest acoustic jazz project, Full Circle - one he says may well be “the most important record of my career.” In addition to Brian’s success as a solo artist, he has developed quite a reputation as a producer. To see some of the projects that Brian has produced, go to the B² Productions area of the site as there are many CD’s and sound bites from some of those projects. All in all, Brian has produced at least a dozen top #10 hits as well as three #1 songs for several artists! Brian certainly has evolved into a very respected voice in music industry. From smashing through the barriers of how the bass is SUPPOSED to be played, cutting edge bass design, to being recognized as a world-class producer, songwriter, and session musician. He keeps pushing the envelope to become the best that he can be and to keep pushing the boundaries. As Brian himself says, "There are no rules, just dreams". For more information about Brian, please visit www.brianbromberg.net. This performance was originally recorded at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA on July 30, 2016.
