Gary 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.
