Point of Departure hosts James Newton’s appreciation of Bobby Bradford on the occasion of his 75th birthday. This is really worth a read. Newton sets Bradford’s work in the larger context, and also demonstrates how important a figure Bradford has been — both globally and on the LA scene.

New York’s Festival of New Trumpet Music will host Bobby Bradford and present concerts in his honor from October 1 – 4 at New York’s Jazz Standard. Bobby will be joined by long-time colleagues David Murray, Marty Ehrlich, Mark Dresser, Andrew Cyrille, Baikida Carroll, Benny Powell and others. He will also receive FONT’s Award of Recognition for his decades of creative accomplishment.

  2. Bobby taught the History of Jazz class at my college. It was one of my favorite classes in my whole time there. What a character!
