Video – Laiya Asks What Is It About Philly: Jeff Bradshaw

first_imgJeff Bradshaw(Photo by L. Whitaker for GPTMC) Jeff Bradshaw may be more soul than you can handle, but you’ll definitely be up for the challenge. The first time I laid my ears on the sounds of Jeff, I was at a Jill Scott show. He was part of her new horn section. From the moment he blew into his trombone, you could tell there was something different in him. The combo of Philly mixed with a church and musical upbringing, seeped from his pores.  So much so that he has to dance it out as he blows into his horn.   His debut album on Hidden Beach Records – home to his North Philly sister Jill Scott – Bone Deep exploded with all types of great soul sounds, including some super soulful voices like Creative Ambassador Carol Riddick, Glen Lewis, Ndambi, Bilal and Jill Scott.  He has this way of pairing the perfect vocalist with the perfect song. Unlike other horn and vocal collabos you’ve heard, Jeff has a way of actually getting his horn to sing.  If you don’t believe me just give it a listen and you may hear his horn enunciate actual lyrics!  And, if you cant understand what the horn is saying, Jeff might just sing it for you.  Needless to say, I am more than ready for his second studio album, which is also a double album called, Bon Appetit and Introducing Brass Heaven (Jeff’s other project, a full brass brand). I caught up with Jeff at the video shoot for his new single, “Til Tomorrow” with Philly’s own Miss Jade and a Philly cousin, Raheem Devaughn. I asked him, “What is it about Philly?” Check out what he had to say.last_img read more

DeMaio also says he doesn’t think anything will come of it because “these people think they are above the law.”The No on 6 campaign issued a statement denying any knowledge of the flyer distribution and denouncing “any inappropriate use of public resources or venues for campaign purposes.”Caltrans contracted Manhole Adjusting Inc. for state-funded work on Route 78 between Julian and Ramona, according to both the agency and the Yes on 6 campaign.From 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the workers, supervised by a Caltrans employee, slowed traffic to a stop, according to the campaign and an eyewitness account, to distribute flyers that read “Stop the Attack on Bridge & Road Safety.”The Yes on 6 campaign alleges the distribution broke a state law prohibiting state and local employees from using public resources for campaign activity and that stopping traffic broke a state law prohibiting the impediment of “normal and reasonable movement” unless it is necessary to do so.Yes on 6 also alleges the No on 6 campaign violated the state Political Reform Act by providing campaign materials to publicly-funded workers and by failing to disclose the value of the “contribution” made by campaigning.RELATED STORY: Supporters of gas tax repeal effort allege Caltrans broke law by campaigning Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Decision 2018 FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
