Cindy Bradley
Cindy Bradley first picked up the trumpet in the fourth grade and hasn't put it down since. She learned the importance of professionalism early on, playing at the age of 12 in a Buffalo area jazz band. Bradley would go on to earn a bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies from Ithaca College and a Master's degree in jazz trumpet performance from the New England Conservatory of Music, where she studied with, and was greatly influenced by, jazz greats such as John McNeil, Bob Brookmeyer, Jerry Bergonzi, George Russell and Steve Lacy.

Her new album, Bloom (Trippin n Rhythm, 2009), is a smooth jazz showcase featuring Bradley alternating between trumpet and flugelhorn, ably assisted by a gifted group of supporting players including Tim Bowman and Marion Meadows, with production by Grammy award winner Michael Broening. She is putting together her own band as she prepares to hit the road opening for and playing with saxophonist Warren Hill.

AAJ contributor Jeff Winbush spoke with Bradley about hooking up with Trippin' n Rhythm Records, her feelings about the new album and getting ready to tour with Warren Hill.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
