Percussionist Brad Dutz has been a fixture of the Los Angeles music scene since his arrival in 1982.  A versatile multi-instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader, Dutz has recorded 34 albums under his own name and appears on countless others as a sideman.  Twenty albums feature Dutz’ compositions exclusively. Dutz is equally at home in jazz, classical, traditional, and avant-garde styles; he brings virtuosity and artistry to all musical situations, regardless of size, function, or genre.  Trademarks of Dutz’ style include mastery of a vast array of percussion instruments, eclectic influences from experimental jazz to folk music from across the globe, and unexpected ensembles of high-level virtuosos in his community.
