WIJBF 2010 Performer Profile: Brad Jefford Trio PlusMay 27, 2010
Friday July 16, @ Martini Bar, 4:00-7:00 (Happy Hour)
Arranger, composer, guitarist, educator, performer, improviser; these are some of the many words to describe the works of Brad Jefford. His musical style, although rooted in the spirit of jazz and improvisation, spread further than the vocabulary of traditional jazz to include rock, reggae, hip-hop, folk and even traditional music of Newfoundland.
With influences ranging from guitarists Jim Hall, Bill Frisell, Wayne Krantz and Mick Goodrick, to composers like Chris Potter, Dave Holland, and J.S Bach to songwriters like the Beatles, Tom Waits, and Paul Simon. Brad’s style is truly unique. This unique style can often be heard in and around St. John’s with Brad Jefford Trio, Curtis Andrews Offering, Exit Party, Jazz East and in numerous small group settings.
