Featured Artist of the Week: Jeff Bradshaw

Jazz-soul trombonist Jeff Bradshaw is back in the studio and touring again after a six-year absence and recovering from a life-threatening illness that sidelined him much of last year. The North Philadelphia native’s return is emblematic of his inner strength and perseverance. His latest album, Stronger, was nominated for a 2021 NAACP Image Award. Released in November 2020 on his newly formed label, Bone Deep Enterprises, it features the likes of Grammy winners Robert GlasperRaheem DeVaughn and Marsha Ambrosius, and fans need not worry — Bradshaw is back, stronger than ever.

This album was a wish list of tasty treats. After my last album, I knew this one would solidify my artistry, so I carefully designed this album with eargasmic intentions. To work with Raheem Devaughn again was a no-brainer, and to add Robert Glasper, Glenn Lewis and Frank McComb to honor Stevie Wonder and Donnie Hathaway was a dream of mine, and it came to fruition. Releasing [the song] “I Do Sincerely,” featuring Marsha Ambrosius, which we did live on my last album, felt like the right thing to do. I finally got to work with [the] jazz bass legend and Grammy Award-winning Christian McBride and Grammy Award-winning producer James Poyser on a Herbie Hancock tribute.
