Sunday, September 10 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK,  I will be joined by Jazz Vocalist Carmen Bradford.  Bradford was born  in Texas and raised in Altadena, Californa.  She grew up with music in her home and in her heart. It was only natural that she would follow in the footsteps of her great family legacy, being the daughter of legendary Drummer-Composer Bobby Bradford and world renowned Vocalist-Composer Melba Joyce. Carmen was discovered and hired by William Count Basie and was the featured vocalist in the legendary Count Basie Orchestra for nine years.
