Brooklyn based guitarist and composer Douglas Bradford was born in New Orleans. Since relocating to New York in 2006, he has collaborated with many artists endeavoring to create pan-idiomatic music. His debut CD as a leader, ‘:atlas obscura’ described as a “refreshing debut” (NYC Jazz Record) and “quite a tight and powerful quartet” (Downtown Music Gallery) was released on Fresh Sound New Talent Records. His most recent project, the Longest Day of the Year, is a new-music ensemble of clarinet, cello, baritone guitar, and drums, blending through-composition and improvisation. Noted for having “a beautiful touch, a unique harmonic sensibility and a musical maturity beyond his years,” (Peter Bernstein) Douglas has contributed to several recordings as a sideman and has performed at international festivals and venues in Europe, USA, and Central America.
