Gene Bertoncini is one of the pre-eminent jazz guitarists active today. His fluid technique and lyricism have won him international praise and accolades as the "Segovia of jazz." An eloquent and versatile improviser, Mr. Bertoncini has been heard with an extraordinary range of jazz greats, including performances and recordings with Wayne Shorter, Paul Desmond, Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, and Hubert Laws among others, as well as such distinguished singers as Tony Bennett, Lena Horne, Nancy Wilson, Vic Damone and Edye Gorme.
A prolific studio musician, Mr. Bertoncini performed with The Tonight Show band for two years when Johnny Carson hosted, and he has worked with composers and arrangers such as Lalo Schifrin and Michael Le Grand and performed with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. In addition to an active performing
and recording schedule, Mr. Bertoncini teaches at the Eastman School of Music and William Patterson University. A New York City native, he graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in architecture.
"Bertoncini is an affecting, highly original guitarist who moves easily back and forth between classical and jazz guitar."
