JAZZ STANDARD Hosts the 7th Annual Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT)

Best Jazz Club 2008 (New York Magazine)


(New York, NY) JAZZ STANDARD, one of the nations premier jazz clubs, presents the 7th Annual Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT) series, “In Honor of Bobby Bradford," from

Thursday, October 1, 2009, through Sunday, October 4, 2009. Program schedule and artist bios are outlined below.

The FONT series exposes audiences to a broad array of today's creative trumpeters, including Bobby Bradford, who celebrates his 75th birthday this year, as well as Eddie Henderson, Baikida Carroll, Jeremy Pelt, Ambrose Akinmusire, Avishai Cohen, and James Zollar. As part of this celebration, Bobby Bradford will convene a Quintet and Octet of long-time associates including David Murray, Marty Ehrlich, Mark Dresser, and Andrew Cyrille. The Festival of New Trumpet Music, a nonprofit founded in 2003 by Dave Douglas and Roy Campbell designed to encourage creative brass music, will present its Award of Recognition to Bradford during the week's run.

I'm thrilled that FONT is celebrating Bobby Bradford this season. Bobby is a towering figure in American jazz and new music, says Dave Douglas. FONT's board chose Bobby as this year's honoree to celebrate his impact on the music and his brilliance as a player and composer. According to Seth Abramson, Jazz Standards Artistic Director, the club is delighted to be hosting FONT for its fifth consecutive year. Our audience has grown to love the series and is eagerly anticipating its return this season, especially in respect to the addition of the venerable Bobby Bradford.

Each series presented by FONT commissions new work from brilliant emerging trumpeter/composers. This season, award-winning trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire will compose a work honoring Bradford for his Quartet plus special guest trumpeter Avishai Cohen. In addition, FONT board member Jeremy Pelt has convened an all-star group in honor of Bradford. The legendary trumpeter Eddie Henderson will join in a performance of original work and pieces by Bradford that will also include James Zollar on trumpet, and the rhythm section of Marc Cary, Vicente Archer, and Gerald Cleaver.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
