Patrick Bradley is no musical novice. Only eight years old when he first began playing keyboards, his background spans virtually every musical genre imaginable: Smooth Jazz, jazz, fusion, gospel, inspirational, funk, progressive rock, classical… they are all in his repertoire.
Dedicated to his wife, the recording's opening track, "Come Rain Or Shine" celebrates the ups and downs of the relationship Patrick calls "the most valuable thing to me on the earth." His love and devotion come through with every joyful note.
Eric Marienthal's soaring sax is like icing on an already delicious cake. With its improvisational groove, "Streetwise" has a freshness and sparkle to it that is hard to resist. Offering a touch of melancholy. "Mending Fences" has a delicate melody line that is both elegant and heartrending.
