“… he is a true master of the jazz art form.” – Mpls-St.Paul Magazine
Influenced by Nina Simone, Al Jarreau and John Coltrane, to name a few, Bruce’s journey has resulted in an eclectic style of world influenced jazz vocals and composition. Bruce possesses a three and one-half octave range, a pure voice with versatility and depth that few can match. His passion for an ever-expanding vision, both musically and personally, is the heart of his 2004 release Connections.
“… he’s not only a singer with outstanding skills, but also a man of great musical imagination.” – St.Paul Pioneer Press
Bruce’s music has taken him to four continents, garnering a large following in France and the Far East. He has been heard on a Worldwide Radio Live Concert on the B.B.C. as well as notable movie soundtracks; Henry has performed on such exotic and legendary stages as the Malate concert in Manila, the Klezmer Festival in Israel, and Le Bilboquet in Paris. Formerly a Minneapolitan, Bruce now makes his home in Chicago, where he regularly performs at top venues and prestigious events. Despite his frenetic performing and recording schedule, Bruce is a committed educator whose “Evolution of African American Music” workshop is an inspirational presentation indeed.
“Bruce is astounding and unclassifiable. He utilizes his talent with tremendous ease and flows effortlessly from octave to octave. He possesses a glowing stage presence. Bruce is cool and yet exciting.” – Alan Denais, Latitude, Paris, France
“[he] … certainly has that special something. Bruce A. Henry has this magic in his voice and singing that makes each of his songs special.” – Jazz-Not-Jazz, Germany
