JAZZ STANDARD Hosts the 7th Annual Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT)

Best Jazz Club 2008 (New York Magazine)



(New York City, NY) - JAZZ STANDARD, one of the nation's premier jazz clubs, presents the 7th Annual Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT) series, "In Honor of Bobby Bradford," from

Thursday, October 1, 2009, through Sunday, October 4, 2009. Program schedule and artist bios are outlined below.



The FONT series exposes audiences to a broad array of today's creative trumpeters, including Bobby Bradford, who celebrates his 75th birthday this year, as well as Eddie Henderson, Baikida Carroll, Jeremy Pelt, Ambrose Akinmusire, Avishai Cohen, and James Zollar. As part of this celebration, Bobby Bradford will convene a Quintet and Octet of long-time associates including David Murray, Marty Ehrlich, Mark Dresser, and Andrew Cyrille. The Festival of New Trumpet Music, a nonprofit founded in 2003 by Dave Douglas and Roy Campbell designed to encourage creative brass music, will present its Award of Recognition to Bradford during the week's run.



"I'm thrilled that FONT is celebrating Bobby Bradford this season. Bobby is a towering figure in American jazz and new music," says Dave Douglas. "FONT's board chose Bobby as this year's honoree to celebrate his impact on the music and his brilliance as a player and composer. According to Seth Abramson, Jazz Standard's Artistic Director, the club is delighted to be hosting FONT for its fifth consecutive year. "Our audience has grown to love the series and is eagerly anticipating its return this season, especially in respect to the addition of the venerable Bobby Bradford."



Each series presented by FONT commissions new work from brilliant emerging trumpeter/composers. This season, award-winning trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire will compose a work honoring Bradford for his Quartet plus special guest trumpeter Avishai Cohen. In addition, FONT board member Jeremy Pelt has convened an all-star group in honor of Bradford. The legendary trumpeter Eddie Henderson will join in a performance of original work and pieces by Bradford that will also include James Zollar on trumpet, and the rhythm section of Marc Cary, Vicente Archer, and Gerald Cleaver.

ABOUT FONT

The Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT Music) supports new trumpet music in all forms, and provides a platform for emerging artists and creative pioneers. Its primary goal is to celebrate the excellence of the current music scene by hosting a broad array of new trumpet music performances. By presenting concerts throughout the year, commissioning new works, creating new projects, hosting panels, and collaborating with other New York presenters and international artists, FONT exposes the exciting range of current activity and brings together disparate communities of musicians, students, and audiences. FONT Music is a nonprofit organization directed by award-winning trumpeter Dave Douglas. It is run by an all-volunteer board that includes some of the finest brass players on the scene. The first Festival of New Trumpet Music took place at the now defunct venue Tonic in August 2003. By the time of the 4th annual festival, in 2006, it had grown to include seven venues and present over forty new trumpet events. The fifth annual festival took place from September 16 to September 30, 2007 at venues all around New York. In 2009 FONT decided to split its season into three parts, presenting different facets of contemporary brass work in four to five day series'. The Festival of New Trumpet Music is proud to celebrate the music and legacy of Bobby Bradford with this series at the Jazz Standard. www.fontmusic.org
