BRADFORD HAYES, a native of Petersburg, Virginia has been a force on the jazz scene in the Northeastern U.S. for several years now. He has performed at a number of club, colleges and concert halls that include Birdland (NYC), Tavern on the Green (NYC), and the Beacon Theater (NYC). Bradford has performed in different musical settings with Jimmy Heath, Al Grey, Cecil Payne, Rufus Reid, Ray Bryant, Winard Harper, Ben Riley, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Cecil Brooks III, Jerry Butler, and The Dells. Mr. Hayes has also opened for Chico Freeman, Betty Carter, Joe Henderson, Max Roach, Marlena Shaw, Pieces of A Dream, and Hilton Ruiz among others. In addition to leading his own band, Bradford had been serving as Musical Director for Babatunde Olatunjiâs Drums Of Passion Band for several years, until Mr. Olatunjiâs passing. Bradford also performed with Mr. Olatunji at Yankee Stadium during Nelson Mandelaâs 1st historical trip to the United States after his release from a South African prison. Recently, Bradford has also been heard performing with The Spirit of Life Ensemble.
In October 2003, Bradford along with 4 other musicians became the subjects of a photograph taken by legendary jazz photographer William Gottlieb. This was the first photo of musicians taken by Mr. Gottlieb since 1948. In addition to this photo session Bradford and the other musicians selected, are also featured as part of a soon to be released PBS documentary about Mr. Gottlieb.
According to Dorothaan Kirk at WBGO-FM in Newark, NJ, âBradford is a young man who deserves more recognitionâ. Mr. Hayes has also been a successful music educator in the Newark, New Jersey Public Schools for 24 years. This connection to education, and his knowledge of jazz, makes him an excellent clinician.
Mr. Hayes holds a Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Music Education from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina. He has also studied privately with George Coleman and Charles Davis.
Bradfordâs latest recording is entitled âThe Jazz Lifeâ. The CD features pianist Michael Cochrane, bassist Calvin Jones, drummer Gregory Searvance, trumpeter Duane Eubanks, and trombonist Cornell McGhee. Bradford also released 2 other CDs entitled âBiancaâs Danceâ, and âOur Fathersâ. He is also featured on a new by The Spirit of Life Ensemble entitled âThat Healinâ Feelinââ. He is also featured on a compilation CD released by BMG Direct entitled âA Jazz Discovery Showcase.â
