Bryce began studying classical piano at age eleven, in Adelaide, South Australia. In his twenties, exposure to Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw inspired him to begin arranging for big bands and small group jazz.

In 1953, he helped found the Australian Jazz Quartet/Quintet, which recorded ten albums and toured widely in Canada and the U.S. with Oscar Peterson, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Woody Herman, Count Basie, Art Blakey, George Shearing, Dave Brubeck and many others, at such
esteemed venues as Carnegie Hall, The Chicago Opera House and Boston’s Storyville.

Bryce’s recognition as one of the “most influential” jazz artists followed the formation of the critically acclaimed Bryce Rohde Quartet in Sydney in 1958. Since moving to the States in ’65, Bryce has performed widely and composed over 60 jazz originals. He plays regularly at Bix Restaurant in San Francisco.
