Patrick Bradley is no musical novice. Only eight years old when he first began playing keyboards, his background spans virtually every musical genre imaginable: Smooth Jazz, jazz, fusion, gospel, inspirational, funk, progressive rock, classical… they are all in his repertoire.
Celebrating his tenth anniversary of independently recording and releasing his own divinely inspired albums – four powerful CDs in ten years time – multi-dimensional keyboard wizard Patrick Bradley proudly presents Intangible (due August 25 on Bradley’s own Patrick’s Song Factory Records). Intangible consists of 10 all original Bradley compositions co-penned and produced by Jeff Lorber, a contemporary keyboard legend since `77 who has worked with scores of music’s finest players yet has minted a kindred relationship with Bradley across his last three projects. Each outing has proven more daring, thrilling and challenging.
Prepare for a groove-a-thon of trilingual takeoff via Southern California-native Bradley’s Hammond B3 organ, Moog synthesizer and electric piano stylings that coolly cross rock, jazz and R&B with fiery, funky mastery…and purpose.
The music of Intangible is anchored by the core rhythm section of Jeff Lorber, Herculean bassist Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets, Steely Dan, Tommy Bolin), ubiquitous guitarist Michael Thompson (Hans Zimmer, Bob James, Stewart Copeland) and rock bottom drummer Gary Novak (Chick Corea, Allan Holdsworth, Lee Ritenour), horns by David Mann, plus two special guests.
