Though rooted in jazz, Denver-based trombonist, composer, arranger, and educator Adam Bartczak reaches into many walks of music. His compositions have been performed by the West Point Academy's Jazz Knights, the University of North Texas One O'clock Lab Band, Denver's 9th and Lincoln Jazz Orchestra, and his own Adam Bartczak Republic, among other groups. Adam is in demand as a performer, composer, arranger, and clinician throughout the country.
A Colorado native, Adam grew up playing in jazz, rock, reggae, Afro-Cuban, and Dixieland bands, to name a few. In addition to jazz, blues, and soul, his music and playing are influenced by various
popular and world musics, particularly those of Africa and Latin America.
