When Steel Talks

ANDY NARELL remembers the late great Clive Bradley

Global - “I’ve always felt uncomfortable with the word ‘arranger’ as it applied to guys like Bradley. A guy who can take a verse and chorus and spin out a 10--minute piece of theme and variation that hangs together and tells a story is more a composer than arranger. And Bradley epitomized that. His music was informed by a knowledge of melody, harmony, counterpoint, rhythm, and structure which were all there but never for their own sake.” - Andy Narell - composer, performing and recording artist
