Newark Star-Ledger reviewer Zan Stewart writes no one sounds quite like Bruce Barth. “His solos are characterized by robust swing, his ability to tell a story, and by his rich, beguiling sound.”

Eri Yamamoto’s trio performs regularly at Arthur’s Tavern, a historic jazz club in New York’s Greenwich Village.

Jazz pianist and composer Bruce Barth, whom The New Yorker magazine described as an “unabashed swinger who can light up a room with his rhythmic panache,” and Japanese pianist Eri Yamamoto, considered one of the freshest, innovators in the jazz world, will grace Stonington’s gWatson Gallery at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 15.

Celebrating its 20th season, gWatson features live jazz artists during the summer. This season’s lineup also will include guitarist/vocalist Camila Meza and pianist Aaron Goldberg, among others.

In addition, the gallery has on view new paintings by Joel Janowitz, Alexandra Tying and other contemporary painters and printmakers.
