Bob Boguslaw and The Way

The Way has been performing together in one form or another since 1995. The group has received critical acclaim from Jazz Times, All About Jazz and Beyond Coltrane for their Summit Records CDs, The Way and Gabrielle’s Hand. They have performed numerous times at the Kennedy Center, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and at Blues Alley. Musically, the group combines elements of Latin jazz, contemporary jazz, and some aspects of classical structure with lots of original compositions, as well as some re-workings of standards and pop tunes.

The group consists of Bob Boguslaw (piano), Frank Russo (drums), Pete Barenbregge (saxophones), Aaron Clay (acoustic bass), and Chris Rose (percussion). Each of these musicians enjoys highly successful careers in both the Washington, D.C. area and nationally. Boguslaw, Clay, and Rose frequently perform at the White House and other Capital venues.

Pete BarenBregge is currently Instrumental Jazz Editor for Alfred Publishing/Belwin Jazz. He previously led the U.S. Air Force’s “Airmen of Note”, one of the world’s premier big bands. Downbeat asserted, “...Barenbregge solos with skill and expression...”

Bob Boguslaw has appeared with jazz legends such as Louie Bellson, Vinnie Colaiuta, Vince DiMartino, and Dave Samuels.

Aaron Clay concertizes with the critically acclaimed duo “Bridging The Gap”, and is principal bassist with the Fairfax Symphony.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
