Bob Berg

About artist

Bob Berg was a native of New York City, born in Brooklyn, and began his career in music in the 1960s, attending the High School of Performing Arts and later the Juilliard School. Originally drawn to the open, modern sound of free jazz, he grew to love the hard bop style and lent his confident sound to the bands of Horace Silver and Cedar Walton in the ‘70s. Though Berg’s tone was very much his own, it did call to mind that of Wayne Shorter more than any other saxophonist’s and in 1984 Miles Davis (who employed Shorter in his second quintet) invited Berg to join his band. Since then he has led a successful career as a leader, playing in concert frequently and recording for Denon, GRP and Concord, among other labels.
He died in traffic accident on 5th December 2002, he was 51.
