A powerhouse group of the Midwest's top improvisers, Dan Bruce's :beta collective is a modern jazz ensemble that performs original compositions and highly personalized arrangements of jazz standards. The members' unique musical identities combine to form a powerful and unmistakable group sound. The ensemble is known for its compositional breadth and interactive and highly energetic performances.

The new album, Earthshine, garnered a four star review from All About Jazz. Critic Troy Dostert writes, "..a generous, accessible sound with an exploratory edge, Bruce brings a finely-polished technique that is at the same time subtly discontent, searching for new expressions and willing to take some chances along the way."

Dan Bruce- By embracing the influence of his heroes from the jazz tradition and retaining his own musical personality, guitarist Dan Bruce has developed a unique and impressive musical voice. A recent transplant to Ohio after spending a decade as an important member of Chicagos vibrant jazz scene, he is active throughout the United States as a performer, recording artist, composer and educator.

Bruces first album, A Single Thread, received praise from both fans and critics. Martin Gladu of allaboutjazz.com wrote, A Single Thread combines his learned guitar work, which is at times reminiscent of Ben Monder, with substantive yet airy, contemporary sounding compositions, and Chuck Vecoli of jazzreview.com called it A brilliant first effort. Bruces much-anticipated second album, Earthshine, came out this October on the Ears and Eyes label. He has performed on more than twenty-five albums as a sideman, and he has worked with a number of eminent musicians including Seamus Blake, Ali Jackson, Dan Wall, Lynn Seaton, Marvin Stamm, The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, Daniel Lippel, and Rose Colella.

Bruces groups have been featured in The Chi-Town Jazz Festival, The Chicago Composers Collective series at the Green Mill, The Chicago Cultural Center Chamber Music Series, The Jazz Institute of Chicago NextGen Jazz Series, South by Southwest, the Toledo Jazz Festival, The Akron Jazz Festival, The Ohio City Summer Festival and a special live radio broadcast on WDCB FM Chicago.

a skilled, seasoned player, one capable of filling the space left by an accompanying harmonic instrument with aplomb and finesse.

-Martin Gladu, allaboutjazz.com

"Daniel Bruce is without a doubt one of the finest of todays young jazz guitarists. He plays with great creativity, soul and intelligence.

-William Piburn, Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine
