Brian Bromberg’s first big break came in 1979 when Marc Johnson, the wonderful bassist with the great jazz pianist Bill Evans, heard Brian play while on the road in Tucson. Several months later while on tour, Marc ran into legendary jazz saxophonist Stan Getz. Stan was looking for a new bass player and asked Marc if he knew any new young players. Marc told Stan about Brian. Brian auditioned for Stan and joined the Stan Getz Quintet in 1979. Brian had just turned 19 and spent nearly a year touring the world with Stan and his band.
Since then, Brian has toured, performed, and or recorded with some of the greatest artists of our time including the likes of: Amy Grant, Andrea Bocelli, Andy Williams, Anita O’ Day, Arturo Sandoval, Barney Kessel, Barry Harris, Bela Fleck, Benny Golson, Bill Evans, Billy Cobham, Bob Berg, Bob James, Bob Mintzer, Bobby Kimball, Bobby Lyle, Boney James, Brian Culbertson, Carmen McRae, Chante Moore, Chuck Loeb, Chris Botti, Christina Aguilera, Clare Fischer, Clark Terry, Dave Douglas, Dave Grusin, Dave Koz, Dave Weckl, David Benoit, David Foster, Dean Martin, Dianne Reeves, Diane Schuur, Dianna Krall, Dizzy Gillespie, Djavan, Doc Powell, Donny Osmond, Dudley Moore, Eddie Harris, Elvin Jones, Elvis Costello, Eric Idle, Ernie Watts, Everette Harp, Freddie Hubbard, Gerald Albright, George Benson, George Duke, Gerry Mulligan, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Hank Jones, Herb Alpert, Herb Ellis, Herbie Hancock, Herbie Mann, Horace Silver, Ivan Lins, James Moody, Jeff Lorber, Jerry Lewis, Jessy J, Joe Farrell, Joe Jonas, Joe Lovano, Joe Pass, Joe Sample, Joey Mcintyre, John Klemmer, Johnathan Butler, Johnny Mandel, Josh Grobin, Joshua Bell, Joshua Redman, Keiko Matsui, Kenny Baron, Kenny G, Kenny Garrett, Kenny Rankin, Kirk Whalum, Lalo Schiffren, Larry Carlton, Larry Coryell, Lee Konitz, Lee Ritenour, Lenny White, Les McCann, Lionel Hampton, Lou Rawls, Maceo Parker, Maria Rita, Maysa, Melissa Manchester, Michael Brecker, Michael Buble, Michael Crawford, Michel Legrand, Mike Stern, Monte Alexander, Nancy Wilson, Najee, Ne-Yo, Nick Colionne, Nino Tempo, Norman Brown, Philip Bailey, Randy Brecker, Rick Braun, Robben Ford, Roy Hargrove, Sarah Vaughn, Shirley Horn, Stan Getz, Sting, Whitney Houston and Woody Shaw.
