Bert Seager BIO:
Pianist and composer Bert Seager has been a leading player on the jazz scene in Boston Massachusetts since 1981. His thirteen compact discs have won him unanimous critical acclaim from the New York Times, Keyboard Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe and many other publications.
He has toured extensively in the United States and internationally, including twelve tours to Japan. He has performed and recorded with Joe Lovano, Tim Hagans, George Garzone, Bob Moses, Joe Hunt, Richie Barshay, John Lockwood and Kazumi Ikenaga. He has performed in ensembles on stage with George Mraz, Miroslav Vitous, Mick Goodrick, Tom Harrell, Ben Street, Chris Speed, Billy Drewes and Jorge Roeder.
Bert is on the faculty of the New England Conservatory of Music.
Bert’s compositions, improvisations and teaching reflect both an inward and outward-looking view of life and music. His trio plays a varied program of original music: always striving for transparency – framing each song’s improvised narrative in a playful three-way conversation.
