John Bruschini

In New York City, Bruschini is well known for his versatility and has performed in many of the city’s popular clubs and performance spaces including The Knitting Factory, Visiones, Condon’s, S.O.B.’s, The 55 Bar, CBGB’s and other venues such as The Great Hall at Cooper Union, The Kitchen and the Guggenheim Museum.

Bruschini’s appeal is due, in part, to his tenure with Cecil Taylor. Bruschini was featured on the Japanese TV broadcast of “Live at the Knitting Factory” with Cecil Taylor’s group, RADA.

Bruschini has also performed, recorded and/or toured with Craig Harris, Dave Douglas, Mose Allison, Denis Charles, Carlos Ward, Charles Persip, Makanda Ken McIntyre, Akira Tana, Butch Morris, Sonny Simmons, Myra Melford, Cyro Baptista, David S. Ware, Dave Kikoski, Wilber Morris, Dennis Irwin, Warren Smith, Guillerme Franco and Gerry Brown.

With the agility to move freely through diverse musical idioms, Bruschini has performed in the U.S. and abroad as both a sideman and a leader. He has been featured at major venues in Europe including the Saalfelden Jazz Festival in Austria, the Stadtgarten in Cologne, the Vilhsofen Festival near Munich and the Joan Miro Art Festival in Palma de Mallorca.

John also performed throughout Guatemala on a tour sponsored by the American Embassy and the Instituto Guatemalteco Americano. John’s other credits include performing with the Dennis Mitcheltree Tentet on the Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, sponsored by the New York Council for the Arts Foundation. He also performed with Wilber Morris at the Kraine Gallery, with Paul Aston Group at Roulette and with his own trio at the Katonah Museum of Art - all events funded by Meet the Composer.

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!
