Tom Bruno (1932-2012) was a jazz musician and co-founder of the New York City Artists’ Collective. As a drummer, Bruno made a significant contribution to the world of avant-garde jazz, forging a unique style while working with a multitude of musicians including Ellen Christi, Juan Quiñones, Sonny Simmons, William Parker, Jemeel Moondoc, Roy Campbell Jr., William Connell, and with the band TEST, featuring Daniel Carter, Sabir Mateen and Mathew Heyner.
Practicing functional anarchy with a far-ranging textural diversity (due in part to the multiple wind instruments mastered by Daniel and Sabir), TEST are forward motion cutting pure and true through the presently ruling culture of destruction. The infamous NYC quartet has its roots in mid 70's loft jazz and these distinguished masters of sound and youthful hustle are far out!!
