About the Album

Chicago tenor saxophonist Geof Bradfield returns with a new recording featuring the stellar rhythm section of pianist Ron Perrillo, drummer George Fludas and bassist Clark Sommers. Roundly lauded for his debut recording, Rule of Three, Urban Nomad further displays the rhythmic flexibility, harmonic sophistication and lyrical phrasing of Bradfield's dynamic and vital voice. Through a collection of original compositions topped off by several standards such as "You're My Everything" and "Con Alma," this seasoned quartet plays with undeniable command and conviction. "Bradfield's blowing mixes grits' n gravy with erudition." - Downbeat

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!
