Merrimans' Playhouse Jazz Performance Series presents the Geof Bradfield Quintet !
Powerful chordless quintet featuring Geoffrey Bradfield on tenor saxophone, Dana Hall on drums, Russ Johnson on trumpet, Joel Adams on trombone, and Clark Sommers (tours with Kurt Elling) on bass.The new album is called "Birdhoused" and is on Cellar Live. We're excited to hear music from the new CD!

Voted Rising Star Arranger, 2015 Downbeat Critics Poll

"Geof Bradfield has drawn plenty of praise for his work as a reed soloist, and it's all deserved But in the last few years, Bradfield has made just as much impact with his precise and colorful writing, in compositions that evoke a vivid sense of place through the same mixture of detail and sweep." Neil Tesser

Saxophonist/composer Geof Bradfield's CD Our Roots(through Origin Records), features his chordless quintet which delves into the sacred and profane music of the rural South. The ensemble premiered the music at the 2014 Hyde Park Jazz Festival and a few months later gave its first European performance at the Made in Chicago Festival in Poznan, Poland.

Joining Bradfield on Our Roots are trumpeter Marquis Hill (winner of the 2014 Thelonious Monk Trumpet Competition), trombonist Joel Adams, drummer Dana Hall, and bassist Clark Sommers, all long time collaborators on the vital Chicago jazz scene. Sommers, Bradfield and Hall form the freewheeling trio Ba(SH), which released its first CD on Origin in 2013. That same year, Adams and Sommers contributed to Bradfield's critically acclaimed suite Melba! for the label. Hill and Bradfield are the frontline of Greenleaf recording artist Matt Ulery's chamber jazz quintet, Loom.

Other projects include the collaborative Spin Quartet, which played venues from Shapeshifter Lab in NY to the Earshot Jazz Festival in Seattle on a nationwide tour following the 2014 Origin release of In Circles. Spin performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival and will tour Canada and the Northwest later in September. Matt Ulery's Loom, with which Bradfield appeared on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert and at Winter Jazz Fest, returned to the Whistler in Chicago this summer for a residency in preparation for a new recording in October. Dana Hall's Black Fire is enjoying its second year of Monday nights at Andy's Jazz Club in Chicago playing the music of Andrew Hill and anticipates recording in the fall as well.
