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 noticed 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.
A freak accident at his home a few years ago resulted in Brian breaking his back in two places with severe trauma. The fall nearly debilitated him requiring extensive rehabilitation to stand and walk, let alone cradle an upright bass properly or strap an electric bass on his back. He had reason to believe that he might never play music again, thus, 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. Brian certainly has evolved into a very respected voice in music industry. From smashing through the barriers of traditional bass, 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".
This performance was originally recorded live on July 30, 2016, at Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA.
