Bob Brozman

Multi-instrumentalist, historian, and educator Bob Brozman was born in New York on March 8, 1954. His uncle, Barney Josephson, was a prominent club owner who ran Cafe Society in Greenwich Village, one of the first places in New York, or anywhere, where black and white musicians played on-stage together.

Brozman studied music and ethnomusicology at Washington University in St. Louis. Brozman became not only a master of classic blues from the '20s and '30s, but also a competent performer of early jazz and ragtime. In the mid-'70s while still in college, he would make trips down South to find, interview, and play with the older blues artists from the 1920s and '30s whom he admired.

Brozman recorded several fine albums in the early and mid-'80s for the Kicking Mule and Rounder labels, and for students of early vintage blues and vintage guitar aficionados, they're well worth looking for. In 1985, he recorded Hello Central...Give Me Dr. Jazz for the Massachusetts-based Rounder label and followed up in 1988 with Devil's Slide. Truckload of Blues appeared on Rounder in 1992.

Brozman also collaborated on album projects with a number of musicians from around the world, including the Tau Moe Family (Remembering the Songs of Our Youth), Debashish Bhattacharya (Mahima), René Lacaille (DigDig), Takashi Hirayasu (Jin Jin and Nankuru Naisa), Djeli Moussa Diawara (Ocean Blues), Led Kaapana (In the Saddle), David Grisman (Tone Poems III), Jeff Lang (Rolling Through This World), Woody Mann (Get Together), and Cyril Pahinui (Four Hands Sweet & Hot). He kept busy as a solo act as well, releasing Live Now, Metric Time, and Blues Reflex early in the new millennium.

Brozman traveled to Papua New Guinea in 2003 and 2004 to record and be filmed with local string bands, and the resulting CD/DVD set, Songs of the Volcano, appeared in 2005. Continuing to show off his versatility in performing compositions influenced by varying cultures, he released two albums in 2007, Lumiere and Post-Industrial Blues. Brozman died at his home in Santa Cruz, California on April 23, 2013; he was 59 years old. ~ Richard Skelly & Steve Leggett, Rovi

I just learned of this amazing man. Can't seem to get enough. I'm just sorry I wasn't aware of him sooner so I could of seen him preform live.

Check your tabs. If you click on the bio tab it will be cool!
I shut off the popup blocker, don't know what problem is.
Interesting but I don't find the similarity between Brozman and Vassar Clements. I would think with his vast recording history, you would have found a place for one of the most versatile fiddle players of all time, Vassar Clements
