Alain Bradette "State of Mind"
A delightful collection, this CD of original jazz instrumentals is entirely
contemporary-sounding, while strongly rooted in the best traditions of
melody and artful playing. "State of Mind" is the brainchild of tenor and
soprano saxophonist Alain Bradette, who also performs duties as composer,
arranger and producer for a robust ensemble of first rate musicians.
