Neil Tesser. Chicago saxophonist and composer Geof Bradfield immersed himself in box after box of Melba Liston's scores at Columbia College's Center for Black Music to deepen his appreciation of her work, and perhaps lead to a project that would raise her profile. With a CMA grant in hand, Bradfield went on to create this six-part suite, tracing Liston's wide-ranging career with a blazing septet including Jeff Parker, Ryan Cohen, and Victor Garcia. •"The long lines, complex themes and meticulous structuring of this score point to the high craft of Bradfield's writing..." - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
