Brad Fritcher Live! Sat 12/15 6pm
Brad’s “insatiable intellectual curiosity and tenacity to investigate and amalgamate musical concepts is a testimonial to his commitment to make an original statement as an artist.”
Brad Fritcher is not just the most talented jazz trumpeter/composer and all around jazz-junky you’ve never met–he’s also a hell of a guy. I know this because Brad recently relocated to Pittsburgh, and in addition to his never-ending jazz training/composition/recording career–has been working here at de Fer for several months. Believe it or not, his music is as good as his waffles–so even if we didn’t know and love Brad personally, we’d still be absolutely THRILLED to be hosting him, along with equally talented musicians Eli Naragon and Carter Freije on Saturday the 15th.
If your into jazz in any way-shape-or-form, this show is you. Brad describes the music as ‘deft soloing over modern psych-hop and jazz beats, original compositions and the incomparable repetoire of Thelonious Monk’. Check out Brad on a recent public radio feature below–and we hope you can join us for this very special event!
