Loveland, Ohio – World-renowned trumpet player, composer and educator Brad Goode will perform his music with the Loveland High School Jazz bands on Saturday, May 12. The free concert, held in the Loveland High School auditorium, starts at 7:30 PM and follows two jazz clinics offered by Goode during the day.
Brad Goode has toured and recorded with the bands of many of jazz music’s great performers, including Von Freeman, Red Rodney, Al Cohn, Ira Sullivan and the Woody Herman Orchestra, to name only a few. He led his own orchestra in Chicago from 1985 until 1998, including a stint as leader of the house band at the famous entertainment venue Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. As cultural ambassador for former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, Goode led jazz groups on tours of Asia and the Middle East. The Chicago Tribune named him one of the most influential Chicagoans of the 1980s for being a major catalyst in the revitalization of the Chicago jazz scene.
For the past 20 years, Goode has primarily performed as a freelance lead trumpeter, working and recording with numerous ensembles. He has served on the faculties of several universities, among them the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. He is currently associate professor of jazz studies at the University of Colorado Boulder.
