Bill Barner’s new recording "Ten Tunes" reached number 10 on the jazz radio charts. Reviews include this from All About Jazz, “This enjoyable and always interesting session highlights the versatility of the clarinet--and also the high level of musicianship of Barner and his band mates--but also breaks it free from the narrow niche to which the instrument, unfortunately, is often relegated to in modern music.” Bill has played jazz in Washington for 25 years. And he’s played in bands that have shared the stage with Michael Franks, Mike Stern and Mark Isham. Bill played on Tobin Mueller’s "Rain Bather", winner of Album of the Year for 2009 at Chicagojazz.net. He has created music for two modern dance companies. Bill holds degrees from the University of California and Kent State University and he studied at the Creative Music Studio in Woodstock, New York. He played orchestral and chamber music in California. At Twins Jazz Bill will be playing music from "Ten Tunes" as well as newer, unrecorded compositions. He’ll be joined on stage by Pete Chauvette on vibraphone and Hugh Johnson on bass. Visit Bill Barner at www.billbarner.com.
