BFJ wishes to thank the renowned jazz pianist, Joe Bonner, for his help and inspiration.
Joe Bonner

Bonner has a unique jazz story. Born in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, in April of 1948, he eventually earned a music degree from Virginia State. His travels took him to Denmark, where he joined artists like Max Roach, Freddy Hubbard, Pharoah Sanders, Woody Shaw, Roy Haynes, Stanley Turrentine and Aretha Franklin.

Bonner has appeared on a long list of recordings as a bandleader or sideman, with titles released on Evidence, Muse, Steeplechase, Capri, and ABC/Impulse! labels.

When Bonner sits at the keys, it's easy to hear Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Art Tatum and Fats Waller, among his many inspirations. Colorado audiences have been lucky to enjoy Bonner's virtuoso sensibility.

Bonner has sat-in with BFJ, and we appreciate him as a musician and a man.

Thanks, Joe.
