Five musical geniuses have had a profound impact on Bradie Speller’s music and life; avant-garde Pianist Cecil Taylor, Trumpeter Miles Davis, Pianist Herbie Hancock, Pianist Josef Zawinul and Saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Four of these legends personally mentored Bradie and he was fortunate to perform and record with Cecil, Joe, Wayne and Herbie during his early years of musical development. After decades of behind the scenes shedding and numerous performances around the world outside the USA, Bradie Speller is bringing his unique brand of #SocialMusic and power performance to the Velvet Note. His first release, “Beams of Light” contains original music that pays tribute to the spirit and styles of the acoustic & electric age of his mentors.
