Live at the Magic Triangle
Label: NoBusiness Records
One of the most original cornet players to emerge from the avant-garde, the great 81-year-old Bobby Bradford hasn't dimmed at all over the years – and he sounds wonderful here on cornet in the company of Ken Filiano – bass, effects, Royal Hartigan – drums and Hafez Modirzadeh – tenor saxophone. Bobby made his mark in Los Angeles, playing with Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy and John Carter. Over two decades, saxophonist Hafez Modirzadeh has developed his pioneering chromodal concept, a cross-cultural musical approach developed from his own American jazz and Iranian heritages.
