The Blues Chronicles: Tales of Life reflects the Baltimore life history of composer and saxophonist Gary  Bartz.  The  story  is  told  in  the  musical  art  form  of  The  Blues -- which  encompasses  Jazz,  Rock  ’n  Roll,  Reggae and Hip Hop -- through other world-renowned musicians whose lives were also shaped by living,  playing  and  studying  in  and  around  Baltimore.  Each  vignette  is  brought  to  life  by  the  improvisatIonal  expressions   of   the   artists.    Gary Bartz is bringing back most of the band members who appeared on the 1996 recording for one night only.  

To help continue the story where the recording left off, joining the original group of artists  will  be  Baltimore  favorites  Todd  Marcus, Warren  Wolf,   Paul   Bollenback, and   local   hip   hop   star   Jackson   Ezekial. 

Each piece highlights experiences of Bartz’s life and the tremendous impact of musical artists in  the  urban  setting  around  him.  He  pays  homage  to  the  musical  greats  who  influenced  him and to the physical world around him in the city..  Musical passages dedicated to hustlers and street vendors blend with improvisations by the Baltimore natives performing the work and sharing their own personal  experiences.  Themes  of  economic  divide  and  social  justice  can  be  heard  within  the  soulful,  yet  postmodern   passages.

Bartz was described by jazz critic Stanley Crouch as "one of the very best who has ever picked up the instrument." He has recorded more  than 40 solo albums and over 200 as a guest artist.  He won a Grammy Award in 2005 for his playing on  McCoy   Tyner 's   album, Illuminations.

Bartz was awarded the BNY Mellon Jazz 2015 Living Legacy Award, presented at a special ceremony at  The Kennedy Center. He currently teaches at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, when he’s not touring.
