IJS Presents The Bradford Hayes Quartet

Local jazz star Bradford Hayes returns to Clement’s for an annual birthday celebration and an evening of swinging straight-ahead music

A Clement’s favorite, saxophonist Bradford Hayes has been a force on the jazz scene in the northeastern U.S. for many years now performing at a number of clubs, colleges, and concert halls across the U.S. and Europe including Birdland, Tavern on the Green, the China Club, and the Beacon Theater. Bradford has performed or recorded in different musical settings with Gerald Alston, Yusef Lateef, Ted Curson, Michael Cochrane, Joe Lee Wilson, Jimmy Heath, Al Grey, Cecil Payne, Rufus Reid, Ray Bryant, Ben Riley, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Cecil Brooks III, Jerry Butler, and The Dells. In addition to leading his own band, Bradford spent 15 years with Babatunde Olatunji’s Drums Of Passion Band, serving as Musical Director for the last 3 years, until Mr. Olatunji’s passing.

Back by popular demand for the second time this season, Bradford brings his exciting quartet featuring Michael Cochrane — piano, Takashi Otsuka — bass, and Noel Sagerman — drums to Clement’s Place for an evening of straight ahead, soulful jazz rooted in the tradition yet pushing beyond.

Proof of vaccination is required for entry. Masks optional.

Time: 7:30 PM — 10:00 PM EDT
