This week's featured artist is trumpeter and flugelhorn player Cindy Bradley. Teaming with Grammy Award winning producer Michael Broening, Bradley won instant critical acclaim and quickly vaulted to the top of smooth jazz charts. She has performed at most of the renowned jazz festivals both nationally and internationally. Famous and successful, she remains humble and gives back by conducting hundreds of jazz workshops at high schools and community colleges all over the country. I hope you enjoy the terrific music from this talented artist. Stay tuned to the end of the show when I will play my very favorite Cindy Bradley song.
Billboard’s top three songs in smooth jazz this week. The very romantic Colors Of Love released by pianist Brian Culbertson on Valentine’s Day reaches number two. We have a brand new number one.
