Desert Island Jazz
Brian Bromberg (2003)
This is the website for bassist, composer, and producer Brian Bromberg.

From acoustic bass to electric bass, Piccolo bass to synthesizer bass, Brian brings the art of bass playing to a new level where the bass moves beyond simply being a rhythm instrument and brings it up front to be the lead voice.

Brian has toured and performed throughout the world with many of the greatest jazz musicians of our time. He has also released some of the most critically acclaimed instrumental albums in contemporary jazz.
