Bill has traveled the world playing jazz music with the top musicians in the field. He has played most recently with Tim Horner, Francois Moutin, Marc Mommaas, Jed Levy, Jeff Brillinger, Joe Locke and Ingrid Jensen, Jackie Allen and Kendra Shank to name a few . He has two CD's Bill Gerhardt and Cotangent "Stained Glass" and "Thrive" coming out on the Steeplechase Label this year and two CD's "Cotangent" and Tony Moreno and Trio just released on the Art of Life Label.
?Bill is just as incredible as pianist as he is as composer?in the first rank of contemporary artists.?Such beautiful music, the BEST I listened to in a very long time!?
-Jurg Sommer, Switzerland
?The most outstanding thing about Cotangent is the sense of selflessness with which everyone in the group plays. There is one unified goal: to serve the music. An amazing band. This music NEEDS to be heard!?
