Bruce Katz Band's Newest CD
I'm really happy and honored to be nominated for the BMA "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year" Award for 2015! Thanks to the Blues Foundation....There are many great pianists out there, so the recognition is very meaningful to me!
" 'Homecoming', a new CD from Bruce Katz is pure genius.
Buy it and put it in your ear. You can thank me later."

Musicians and Critics are raving about The Bruce Katz Band! Here is a small sampling:
"He can play jazz, blues, Bach, anything. Man, he's a heavy!"
- Gregg Allman
"This man is as good as it gets. One of the greatest keyboard artists I've ever heard."
- John Hammond
"Now that's a piano player!"
- Pinetop Perkins
"Katz showcases his jazz-meets-blues chops on both the Hammond B-3 organ and piano, with the results sounding something like a progressive, post-bop jazz group heavily into early-period Ray Charles......rootsy and intelligent improvisational music."
- Matt Collar, All Music Guide To Blues
"Katz is a killer on the B-3!" -
Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times
