EXHALE (2021)

Like most things in 2020, the concept of contemporary jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley’s fifth album took a dramatic turn when the pandemic hit and racial strife erupted. Although ideas for the eleven-song set were already sketched out, when he and producer Darren Rahn wrote the uplifting title track, “Exhale,” the composition seemed to encapsulate exactly what Bradley was feeling and believes that we are all in need of: expel the fear, worry and division gripping the nation and inhale unifying hope and peace.

Bradley recorded “Exhale” during quarantine without ever being in the studio with Rahn, who produced nine tracks for the project, or GRAMMY winner Jeff Lorber, who produced a pair of tunes. The “Exhale” album is a contemporary jazz amalgam constructed of jazz fusion, rock, R&B, blues, funk and pop. The melodies are lush and indelible, fragrantly blossoming amidst soulful grooves. The fusion excursions stretch beyond and across borders. The production deftly melds the warm organics of live instrumentation and the modernity of synthesized sonics. Buy & Stream Here

INTANGIBLE (2017)

Enjoy 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.

CAN YOU HEAR ME (2014)

It’s hard to resist such a cheerful and upbeat session as this one by adult contemporary/smooth jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley. The album is well padded with illustrious musicians such as Jeff Lorber, Dave Koz, Jimmy Haslip, Gary Novak, David Mann, Rick Braun, Eric Marienthal, Dwight Sills and Michael Thompson. Nearly all songs were composed by Bradley in collaboration with Jeff Lorber, who also produced this project.

His clean touch on piano is enjoyable on “All In” and the title track, with some hip electric grooves palpable along with Marienthal on”Blue Skies” and “Catalan.” Danceable pieces such as the soul funk “Shoreline,” “North of Evermore” and “Sierra” have Haslip and Novak create some irresistible patterns that make you remember one of the reasons people like music.

Patrick Bradley - Under The Sun

UNDER THE SUN (2011)

So what is unique about Under the Sun? Seek out “Slipstream” and you will find Rick Braun’s flugelhorn and trumpet driving the song but don’t dismiss the organ and clavinet work of Bradley and Lorber respectively. There is a unique progressive drive and attitude found here that separates Bradley from his peers. That compelling approach is also found on “Time and Chance” and “Crows On The Lawn” with Bradley’s Moog and organ driving the songs, the latter supplemented by Eric Marienthal’s alto saxophone. Similar results can be found courtesy of “The Empress Of Dalmatia” where Bradley allows guitarist Dwight Sills to stretch.

“The idea behind this record is to enjoy life and celebrate all it offers during the brief time we have under the sun. No matter what life dishes up, we should keep our dreams alive and pursue our passion, hopes and aspirations.”
