Jeff Bradshaw – Bone Appétit

When Jeff Bradshaw plays his trombone you will hear tones, you never heard before. He made the “slide” to a musical art form on trombone. He doesn’t plays the notes directly, but approaches them with a trombone own motion. What seems to be difficult to describe, enthuses the audience with magic charm.

Hear it to believe it. Jeff has recorded, toured, and performed with: Michael Jackson, Earth Wind & Fire, Jill Scott, Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Kirk Franklin, Floetry, Common, John Legend, Kanye West, Tyler Perry, Dave Chappelle, Jazzy Jeff, Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, and many more.

But his personal style shines on his solo releases. We were excited, when Jeff released his debut album Bone Deep on Hidden Beach Records in 2003. Music journalist Rob Young described Bone Deep as most definitely one of the coolest joints of 2003! He also lent his trombone on some of Hidden Beach Recordings’ very own Unwrapped series.

It took a long time until Jeff released his sophomore album. Bone Appétit is out now and he pleases us with a double issue of 20 songs. The title is an aptly amalgamation of the short term for trombone and the French bon appétit. The following guests are joining the dinner Marsha Ambrosius, Raheem DeVaughn, Kindred the Family Soul, Maysa (Incognito), Coko (SWV), PJ Morton (Cash Money/Maroon 5) and introducing Brass Heaven. Be aware that this double feature album is a limited edition.
