Pas de Deux
Released in January
Now available for Download (MP3) (and sampling) at CDBaby:
Pas de Deux is a live studio recording with an intimate feel and is a collection of 12 pieces in what I would characterize as a "vocal jazz" style. The song list includes original pieces: Pas de Deux (composed with Naomi Bradford), Tour of the Universe - both of these are instrumentals, Shroud of Time, Sweetness of a Day, Dreamer's Waltz and a reprise of Walk in Beauty and That's That. It will also include covers of Astrud Gilberto's I'm Nothing Without You, Tom Wait's Ol' 55, David Sylvian's Fire in the Forest, and Cole Porter's Ever'time We Say Goodbye...and my new interpretation of the old folk song Leatherwing Bat (in the spirit of Ray Charles and Cab Calloway to change it up a bit)...It was recorded at Triad Recording Complex (New Bedford, MA and Warren, RI) with Phil Greene - Producer and Matt Ricci - Engineer.
will be exhibited in the
Community Gallery on the 2nd Floor
384 Acushnet Ave.
New Bedford, MA

Retrospective August 10, 2013: Naomi Bradford and Challenge Unlimited @ Ironstone Farm
Update: Ironstone Farm's Challenge Unlimited has set May 18, 2014 as the date for the Equine Therapy Program for Cancer Survivors in Naomi's memory. 12 people who are battling cancer will have the same opportunity that others' generosity provided to Naomi in August, 2011. Thanks to all who contributed!
Many turned out to enjoy a retrospective of Naomi's art and life at her former studio in North Harwich, MA. Part of the celebration involved raising funds for the support of Challenge Unlimited's Equine Therapy Program for Cancer Survivors, a program that helped Naomi during her struggle with cancer.
On Friday, August 16th, Naomi's sister Maura and I delivered checks and cash to sponsor a full retreat for 12 cancer survivors in Naomi's name which will be scheduled for Spring, 2014.
More funds have come in for a grand total of $4800.00...Naomi would be overwhelmed by this generosity in her memory...thanks so much to everyone...Gregg
