Bruce Dudley has been playing piano professionally for over 40 years. His recent recordings include: Semblance, Mostly Monk, and The Solo Sessions. One writer for Jazz Times wrote, “Bruce Dudley’s Mostly Monk respectfully takes the music of Thelonious Monk and lifts it to a new level with his musical imagination and masterful creativity.” Rahsaan Barber, founder of Jazz Music City Records wrote, “The Solo Sessions is a fresh addition to Dudley’s discography, presenting new compositions from the pianist as well as standards from the the Great American Songbook, all played with Dudley’s trademark lyricism, touch, and wit.” As well as appearing as pianist on the recordings by Evan Cobb, Imer Santiago, Sandra Dudley, Rachel Price, JazFX, and others, Dr. Dudley has performed concerts with popular and jazz artists such as Aretha Franklin, Crystal Gayle, Randy Brecker, Herb Ellis, Fraser McPherson, Eddie Daniels, George Russell, and others. He has played keyboards in the orchestras of over 35 touring Broadway shows, including Wicked, Jersey Boys, Grease, My Fair Lady, Aida, State Fair, The King and I, Guys and Dolls, Annie, Peter Pan, and Will Rodgers Follies.
