Boulder Jazz Fans Message Board › Meetup details changed: Caffe Sole presents The Brad Goode Jazz Quartet
Brad Goode Quartet and jam session every Monday night: 7-10 Free Admission
Trumpeter Brad Goode is a unique and instantly recognizable virtuoso. Whether working as a soloist, bandleader, lead trumpet man or sideman, for 25 years he has been in great demand nationally.
Come join us for a night of hot jazz exploration and improvisation. Brad Goode and his quartet are renowned, and the regular Jazz Monday slot promises the unexpected as friends and collaborators often drop by and sit in. I was at Caffe Sole last Monday night and the cafe was packed and the jam session included a full horn section and the big jazz band sound was fat, brilliant and the solos stunning. Please read the bio on Mr. Goode below and come by the cafe to hear some killer straight ahead acoustic jazz. You won't regret it!

Brad Goode's Bio
Brad's jazz pedigree was established through his apprenticeship with many legends of the music. As a youngster, he toured and recorded with Von Freeman, Red Rodney, Al Cohn, Eddie Harris, Ira Sullivan, Frank Morgan, Don Lanphere, Curtis Fuller, Jack DeJohnette, Ernie Krivda, Richie Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Barrett Deems and many others.
Brad led his own combo in Chicago from 1986 until 1998, appearing at major festivals and night clubs around the world, including a twelve year stint as leader of the house band at the famous Green Mill Jazz Club. As a Cultural Ambassador for the Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago, he led jazz groups on tours of Asia and the Middle East. He was named one of the most influential Chicagoans of the 1980s by the Chicago Tribune, who credited him as a "major catalyst in the revitalization of the Chicago jazz scene."
In recent years, Brad has increasingly appeared as a lead trumpeter with many big bands and symphony orchestras. His 15 solo recordings can be heard on the Delmark, Sunlight, SteepleChase, and Origin labels.
Mr. Goode has served on the faculties of the American Conservatory of Music, New Trier H.S., Cuyahoga Community College, The University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, and The University of Colorado, where he is currently Associate Professor of Jazz Studies.
