BURT BALES picture
Burt Bales (April 20, 1917, Stevensville, Montana - October 26, 1989, San Francisco) was an American jazz stride pianist. Bales began on piano at age twelve, and played in hotels and nightclubs in California in the 1930s. He played regularly in San Francisco in the 1940s, with Lu Watters's Yerba Buena Jazz Band among others, but was drafted in 1943 and only recorded with that group on one brief session with Bunk Johnson. He was discharged for myopia and led his own band from 1943 to 1946 before taking an extended residency at San Francisco's 1018 Club. He played with Turk Murphy (1949-50), Bob Scobey, and Marty Marsala, then played mostly solo between 1954 and 1966; one of his regular gigs was at Pier 23. He recorded extensively, for the labels Good Time Jazz, Arhoolie, ABC-Paramount, and Euphonic.
