O’s Notes: Cool contemporary jazz featuring the flute can be a smoking combination. Bradley has the recipe for first rate cool jazz: a funky band plus a strong song selection led by his flute melodies. His band is Rob Whitlock (B3), Duncan Moore (d), Bob Boss (g) and Alan Phillips (percussion). The program includes bop – “Now’s The Time”, pop covers – “Pink Panther Theme”, warm ballads – “Summertime” & “Ain’t No Sunshine” and soulful cookers – “Breezin'”! There is something for everyone and a lot to love. Leighton follows his recipe; he’s cookin’!
