Born in Austin, Texas and raised in Altadena, California, Carmen Bradford grew up with music in her home and in her heart. It was only natural that Carmen would follow in the footsteps of her great family legacy, being the daughter of legendary trumpeter/ composer Bobby Bradford and world renowned vocalist/composer Melba Joyce. Her grandfather Melvin Moore sang with Lucky Millender and Dizzy Gillespie's Big Band in the 1940's, and sang with the Ink Spots, making Carmen the third generation of incredible musicians. She has carved out a place in music history for herself and is playing an integral role in this uniquely American art form called jazz. Carmen Bradford is Jazz Royalty. See her live January 14. Savor great jazz in an intimate, club-like setting, in a 120-seat room at the Attucks. The Attucks Jazz Club will feature world-class musicians one Saturday each month, from fall to spring: Jan 14: Carmen Bradford, vocals; Feb 11: Milton Suggs, vocals; Mar 18: Sean Jones, trumpet.
