Robert “Bootsie” Barnes embodies the spirit and the tradition—past, present and future—of everything that was and is Philadelphia jazz. There likely isn’t a jazz giant who this multi-award-winning tenor saxophonist has not played with. He’s toured the world with the likes of Philly Joe Jones, Mickey Roker, Shirley Scott, Don Patterson, Sonny Stitt, Jimmy Smith, Al Grey, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Jimmy Smith, Milt Buckner and dozens of others. “He plays tenor saxophone with self-assured flair and gorgeous depth in a classic style,” said Jazz Times. Bootsie Barnes. Truly an original. And a legend.

Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
