Bobby Bradford and Friends: Stealin' Home: Jackie Robinson Suite

Read "Stealin' Home: Jackie Robinson Suite" reviewed by Chuck Koton


Born in Mississippi in 1934 and raised in Dallas, Texas, cornet master and composer Bobby Bradford knows racism and segregation.

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman
