Rich Ruttenberg

Born in Chicago in the 50's, I started playing piano at 7 (I think, you'll have to ask my parents). I started to want to play jazz in high school when my Dad started listening to Ramsey Lewis records. I decided I definitely wanted to play when I heard Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson. I went to Indiana University for awhile, then went back to Chicago and played clubs there until 1980 when I moved to LA, where I've been working since then. I met and married my beautiful and amazing wife Susan Marder here 12 years ago who writes music for TV and films--most recently as composer for the show "Any Day Now" for the last four years. We have two dogs, one who is really nice and one who is insane. We like them both, though.
