A native of Carbondale, Pennsylvania, guitarist, composer, arranger, author, and educator Dale Bruning spent time living, working and recording in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York during the 1940s and 1950s. During his tenure in the United States Navy from 1953-57, he was a guitarist and arranger, and when called upon, he also played piano, bass, vibes, and percussion.
Upon his release in 1957, he studied at Temple University, declaring and graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology. He took as many music classes as he could. Concurrently, he studied music and guitar with world renowned educator Dennis Sandole.
His prowess as a performer is equaled by his talent in composing, arranging and teaching. During his 45 plus years of private teaching, he has expressed the joy of jazz to more than 1000 students, many of whom went on to become professional musicians. Among those include Bill Frisell, Mark Patterson, Bob Gillis, Tim O'Brien, Pat Donohue, and Mark Simon.
He has been featured in such prestigious magazines as 20th Century Guitar and Just Jazz Guitar, with superb CD reviews found in JazzTimes, Jazz Journal of England, Guitar Player, Cadence, Jazzscene of Oregon, The Denver Post, The Oregonian, The Omaha Herald, 20th Century Guitar, Western Austraila Guitar Socierty newsletter, Berman Foundation newsletter and Just Jazz Guitar.
In 1996, he and his business partner, writer/concert & CD producer Jude Hibler, began their Jazz Link Enterprises CD label by coproducing The Dale Bruning Quartet: Tomorrow's Reflections (JLECD-44001). He has since recorded Conference Call with Michael Moore (JLECD-44002); Reunion with Bill Frisell (JLECD-40072), and is heard on Live! at Sherman's Coffee House (JLECD-44003) with Rich Chiaraluce on reeds/leader and Kenny Walker on bass.
On the 2002 JLE release, The Timeless Music of Harold Arlen, Bruning's Quartet features Michael Moore, bass; Rich Chiaraluce, reeds; and Paul Romaine, drums. Partner Hibler is the Narrator and is also heard on this recording. The Timeless Music of Harry Warren CD finds The More I See You, Jeepers Creepers, I Had the Craziest Dream and so many other hits from the 1930s-1950s on this recording.
His 2005 release, Easy Does It! The Music of Charles Eakin features himself, Rich Chiaraluce, Mark Simon, and Paul Romaine.
In 2006, Music of Gershwin, By George! is his latest recording. This CD on the JLE label includes pianist Jeff Jenkins, bassist Mark Simon, and drummer Paul Romaine. Dale arranged all of the music and is the leader/guitarist. His other CDs include Music of Gershwin, By George! - Dale Bruning Quartet, Classical Connections, Vol I: with Ali Ryerson and Classical Connections, Vol II: with Ali Ryerson
Also in 2006, he was the honoree of The Dale Bruning Celebration Day - a four hour tribute to him and his accomplishments in music and in his personal life as being one of the major influences in the jazz world throughout the world. More than 350 people attended this time of recognition, including Bill Frisell and Gene Bertoncini.
