Chicago Jazz Magazine Review

Thanks to Jeff Cebulski for his review of the new album! "Bruce, who has crafted a strong reputation based on his nuanced support for many well-known jazz artists, has deftly progressed into a fine composer and leader of a quintet, a couple of trios, and, now, this “collective” that features some of the thick cream of the rising Chicago crop. The new album, Earthshine, sounds like the next step in a rising career."

All About Jazz Review

Big thanks to Troy Dostert at All About Jazz for the thoughtful review of my new album, Earthshine. 4 stars!

"...a generous, accessible sound with an exploratory edge, Bruce brings a finely-polished technique that is at the same time subtly discontent, searching for new expressions and willing to take some chances along the way." For full review follow the link below.
