Tony Glausi Quartet

February 28 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for the Tony Glausi Quartet in the Birdland Theater on February 28th at 8:30pm!

For years now, Glausi has been hailed as an extremely accomplished trumpet player as well as composer and producer. With EVERYTHING AT ONCE, his new album released on September 3rd, Tony heads for straight-to-the-gut pop jams and R&B-influenced tunes that take inspiration from a bevy of sources while still remaining uniquely true to Glausi’s vision as an artist. To date, Glausi has produced ten records of his own music which have been commissioned to be performed and recorded by world-class musicians. He has toured dozens of countries around the world playing at renowned festivals and clubs including the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Leopolis Jazz Festival in Ukraine and the New Morning in Paris.

Growing up in a musical family in Portland, Oregon, Tony began to sing and play the piano at a young age. Citing Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Tracy Chapman, Paul Simon, Queen, Chet Baker, and Earth Wind & Fire amongst his earliest influences, by ten years old he had started to play the trumpet and compose. Tony now resides in New York and performs and records with the likes of Billboard-charting pianist and singer Peter Cincotti, GRAMMY-nominated Nana Mendoza, British singer-songwriter Max Milner, and more. He is also currently starring in Speakeasy: Times Square weekends at Bond 45.

Tony is on teaching staff at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York and at The Idyllwild Arts Academy in Los Angeles. Over the years he has also held teaching positions at the University of Oregon, where he completed his degrees, and the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts, where he founded the Shedd Youth Jazz Orchestras.
