"This is a trio of living musical poets. Cornetist Bobby Bradford was the partner of John Carter until the death of this astonishing clarinetist and he played with giants like Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Haden and David Murray. Trombonist Glenn Ferris' curriculum goes from the Don Ellis and Harry James big bands, the rock-jazz bands of Frank Zappa and Billy Cobham and to a multitude of other groups, including those of Tony Scott and Steve Lacy. Double Bassist Mark Dresser, one of the foremost players on the scene, has shared the bandstand with Anthony Braxton, Ray Anderson, John Zorn, Anthony Davis, Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano and many other artists.

Bobby, Mark and Glenn came together in the middle-late 70's through Bobby, who was (and is) a well respected figure head of the "creative music" LA scene. Bobby had his own club-concert room in Altadena California called the "Little Big Horn". This is where they would join their creative forces with other musicians such as John Carter and James Newton. They had always talked about recording together but life took them to other places and dimensions. And time just passed by.

In 2009, Glenn made a very rare visit to LA and contacted Bobby and Mark about finally getting some of their music documented. Glenn brought recording equipment with him and they let the tape roll: in the living room of trombonist-composer Bruce Fowlers house. Since several years now, Glenn video interviews musicians with one question. What is Beautiful Music for You ?. You can hear the collective answer from Bobby, Mark and Glenn on this very beautiful and historically important recording."-Clean Feed Records

Artist Biographies:

"Bobby Lee Bradford (born July 19, 1934) is an American jazz trumpeter, cornetist, bandleader, and composer. He is noted for his work with Ornette Coleman. In October 2009, Bradford became the second recipient of the Festival of New Trumpet Music's Award of Recognition.

Bobby Lee Bradford's life begins in Mississippi, he and his family then moved to Dallas, Texas, in 1946. He moved to Los Angeles, California in 1953 where he reunited with Ornette Coleman, whom he had previously known in Texas. Bradford subsequently joined Coleman's ensemble, but was drafted into the U.S. Air Force and replaced by Don Cherry.

After playing in military bands from late 1954 to late 1958, he rejoined Coleman's quartet from 1961 to 1963, which infrequently performed in public, but was indeed recorded under Coleman's Atlantic contract. Quite unfortunately, these tapes were among those many destroyed in the Great Atlantic Vault Fire. Freddie Hubbard acted as Bradford's replacement upon his departure to return to the West Coast and pursue further studies. Bradford soon began a long-running and relatively well-documented association with the clarinetist John Carter, a pairing that brought both increased exposure at international festivals (though the records remain scantily available, when one excludes web rips and bootlegs). Following Carter's death in 1991, Bradford fronted his own ensemble known as The Mo'tet, with which he has continued to perform since. He is the father of drummer Dennis Bradford. He is also the father of jazz vocalist Carmen Bradford.

He holds a B.M. degree from Huston-Tillotson College (now Huston-Tillotson University) in Austin, Texas.

In addition to Coleman, Bradford has performed with Eric Dolphy, Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, Ingebrigt Hker-Flaten, Bob Stewart, Charlie Haden, George Lewis (trmbn.), James Newton, Frode Gjerstad, Vinny Golia, Paal Nilssen-Love, and David Murray, who was previously a student of his in the 1970s.

He is an instructor at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California, and Pomona College in Claremont, California, where he teaches The History of Jazz, known to be one of the most popular classes available."
