Bobby Bradford and The Mo'Tet - Live In L.A. (1983)

Cornetist Bobby Bradford has recorded far too infrequently throughout his career. A mellow-toned player with an adventurous style that is usually surprisingly accessible, Bradford is well-featured on this excellent quintet date with altoist James Kousakis, both Roberto Miguel Miranda and Mark Dresser on bass and drummer Sherman Ferguson. Together they perform five of Bradford's originals, music that at its best (particularly on "Sho Nuff Blues" and "Dirty Rag") looks both backwards to earlier styles and extends the innovations of Ornette Coleman. Recommended.

1.- Sho' Nuff Blues
2.- Ornate
3.- Ashes
4.- You Know
5.- Dirty Rag

Bobby Bradford (cornet); James Kousakis (alto sax); Roberto Miguel Miranda (bass); Mark Dresser (bass); Sherman Ferguson (drums).

Recorded on June 7 & 8, 1983 at Music Lab., Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks Travis.
It will be interesting - 80's Bradford without John Carter?!
Any chance for his "One Night Stand" on Soul Note with Sullivan Trio? Thank you in advance.
