Called "A brilliant melodist" by the Chicago Reader, Bobby Bradford is considered one of the most original trumpet/cornet players to emerge from the avant-garde. A long time professor at Pomona College, he played a fundamental role in Ornette Coleman's band in the 1950s, appearing on the revolutionary Coleman album, Science Fiction. Bradford also had a longtime collaboration with clarinetist John Carter and performed in the 1990's with the David Murray Octet and Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra. In October 2009, Bradford became the second recipient of the Festival of New Trumpet Music's Award of Recognition. Bradford and leading Los Angeles based multi-woodwind player, composer, bandleader, Vinny Golia have had a long time musical association. Golia draws influences from jazz, world music, and contemporary classical music and plays 20 different woodwind instruments. His recordings have been consistently picked by critics and readers of music journals for their yearly "ten best" lists and he has been a featured performer with artists including Anthony Braxton, Horace Tapscott, John Zorn, Tim Berne, Patti Smith, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. Golia has also contributed original compositions and scores for dance, video, theatrical productions, and film. Currently a teacher at California Institute for the Arts, Golia has been named ‘One of the 100 people who have influenced the course of Jazz in our Century' by Jazziz Magazine. The Jazz Journalists Association honored him with a Lifetime Achievement  Award in 2006. Bradford and Golia will be joined by Dave Tranchina, bass and Tina Raymond, drums. A unique voice in the Los Angeles contemporary improvised music scene, drummer Tina Raymond blends traditional jazz vocabulary with African polyrhythm and classical percussion technique. She studied percussion at the University of Cincinnati as well as African ewe music at CalArts with Ghanaian chief Alfred Ladzekpo and jazz drum set with Joe LaBarbera, Jeff Hamilton, and John Von Ohlen. She is currently a full-time professor of music at Los Angeles City College in Hollywood, CA. $20/$15 Members & Students
