The first time I met Thomas Bartlett, we shared a bottle of Yoko Ono’s champagne in a hotel room in Oslo, Norway. As first-meeting scenarios go, it’s a pretty good one—and actually quite fitting, considering his line of work. Among New York City’s most sought-after musicians, Bartlett often finds himself in pricey hotel rooms in foreign countries at the behest of whichever musical icon he happens to be working with. Back in 2006, he was playing in Ono’s band at the Oya Festival and I was still a newbie music journalist. Some six years later, he remains a respected accompanist for a large coterie of musicians, but these days that is but one of his many fashionable hats. Also sought-after as a producer, a recording artist (he releases his own music under the moniker of Doveman), and a curator of New York’s still-vibrant downtown scene, he clearly has a knack for bringing people together.
