ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gary Negbaur is steeped in the New Orleans piano tradition and tours worldwide performing the music of the '20s to today. This pianist/singer/songwriter has grooved at the Superdome in New Orleans, knocked them out at Birdland in NYC and raised the roof at South by Southwest in Austin. In Paris, he brought the audience to its feet at the legendary Le Bilboquet. He tours as a soloist, with the Gary Negbaur Group and in Jazz, Blues & Two Tattoos, a show that celebrates New Orleans and New York and the indelible marks they made on music history. His innovative arrangements of standards and soulful originals make for unforgettable performances.

A "witty songwriter" (Austin Chronicle) with a "jazzy croon" (St. Louis Post Dispatch) who can "control the black and whites like...Captain Kirk manning the Enterprise" (The Tennessean), his recordings include original rock music (Let me explain), solo jazz standards (Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat) and children’s songs (Max’s Family Band). His latest recording (Alive in New Orleans) was recorded live and features New Orleans classics.

In addition to performing, Negbaur writes music and libretti for theater. He co-wrote Wine Lovers, the world’s first interactive wine-tasting musical. It’s being performed across the U.S. and on Norwegian Cruise Line. Librarians in Love (co-written with Suzanne Bradbeer and Tony-nominee John Cariani) ran at the NYC Fringe Festival. It is in pre-production now.

Negbaur’s music has been used on film and TV. He contributed to the score of the feature film An American Summer, and wrote the theme for Cancerland, a reality TV show about breast cancer survivors. His song, Red Pontiac, was featured on NPR's legendary "Car Talk," and singers often perform and record his music.

Gary studied at Harvard University (where he received the David McCord Prize for unusual creative talent and a Magna Cum Laude B.A.) and the Berklee College of Music (where he was a merit scholarship recipient). He tries to put all that to good use.

“Alive in New Orleans is lots of fun. (Negbaur serves) up standards and witty originals alike...Playful explorations of trad-jazz and boogie-woogie.”
-OFFBEAT MAGAZINE (NEW ORLEANS)

“Negbaur can control the black and whites like...Captain Kirk manning the Enterprise...Negbaur's timing is phenomenal...
each touch of the keys comes as the right moment...Negbaur's willing to try deserves credit. His ability to succeed garners even more.”
-THE TENNESSEAN (NASHVILLE, TN)

“Negbaur is a witty songwriter and pianist and a suave vocalist.”
-THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE

“Gary Negbaur is a pianist/singer/songwriter whose lyric-driven, groove-oriented tunes are infused with a breezy style that appeals to popsters, folkies and jazz fans alike.”
-DAILY HERALD (CHICAGO, IL)
