Jeff has been at the center of the Neo-Soul movement that emerged out of Philadelphia, becoming an important influencer of that eclectic scene. Like recent best-sellers by Robert Glasper, his two acclaimed solo albums have delivered a unique fusion of R&B, Jazz and Gospel.

The Iconic Story

Once upon a time R&B was known for great live performances marked by passion, spontaneity and even transcendence through the great soul revues at such storied venues as The Apollo Theater, The Howard Theater and The Uptown.The musicians playing behind the singers were often the finest players from the realms of R&B jazz and gospel, who delivered intricate arrangements, electrifying solos and undeniable groove. In recent times, such performances have been rare but the hunger for that special sort of musical experience is still there and maybe it just takes someone with great determination and vision to bring it back. Jeff Bradshaw, a key player in Philadelphia’s influential neo-soul scene is the man with such vision.

The Legendary Sound

The Experience Revealed

Jeff Bradshaw’s sound is positioned somewhere between jazz-fusion and neo-soul. Incorporating jazz, soul, and the occasional African rhythm, Bradshaw evokes George Benson, George Duke, and Earth, Wind & Fire at their most prolific. True to the jazz-fusion genre, Bradshaw lays down a groove that is at once musically esoteric and lyrically accessible.
