Happy Birthday, Carmen Bradford!

I have been following vocalist Carmen Bradford since the early 1990’s and love her dearly. I finally got to hear her live in concert a couple of years ago with the Count Basie Orchestra at Yoshi’s. When she stepped on the stage it was electrifying and when she sang, it brought me to tears which I will rarely admit…lol! She has the voice of an angel.

Carmen has sung with the Count Basie Orchestra since the 80’s and has the distinct honor of being the last vocalist Mr. Basie selected for the band before his passing.

The photo above is from her performance with the Count Basie Orchestra at Yoshi’s last October. I look forward to hearing her live in concert again soon.

Love you, Carmen!!!!
