Jimmy Bruno, born July 22, 1953 in Philadelphia, PA. He’s one of the most critically acclaimed jazz guitarists performing today. Jimmy came to prominence as a jazz musician in the 1990s, after a successful twenty-year career as a sought-after commercial guitarist and session musician.
“Get on the bus; we leave tonight.”
Those were the words that began Bruno’s professional career as a guitarist. Most of the other guitarists auditioning for Buddy Rich’s band that day in 1973 were getting drumsticks thrown at them, Buddy’s not-so-subtle way of showing disapproval. But note 19 year old Jimmy; he got the gig.
Bruno is in Denver to perform at the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival this weekend.
