Melba! A New Jazz Work by Geof Bradfield

Date: 
Friday, January 18, 2013 - 6:00pm

Melba Liston (1926-1999) was born in Kansas City, moved to Los Angeles, played with Dexter Gordon and was a copyist for Gerald Wilson. She made State Department tours with Dizzy Gillespie, arranged for Randy Weston albums, taught in Jamaica, and headlined an early Women's Jazz Festival back in Kansas City. Performed at Northern Illinois University, composer Geof Bradfield's six-part suite celebrates Melba!

(Melba! by Geof Bradfield and Geof Bradfield Ensemble has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America's New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.)
