Show Notes

The tenor sax master’s resume includes Sturgill Simpson, Marcia Ball, Anders Osborne, George Porter, and Rickie Lee Jones. His exciting solo releases range from experimental collaborations such as redrawblak with Simon Lott, as well as modern jazz records (“Quintet,” “The Dockside Sessions”) and the upcoming concert film “Extended + Brad Walker.” Brad’s a sensitive soul with a spiritual bent. Should be an interesting contrast to the Troubled Men.

Carolina tobacco country, high school band, LSU music school, Teach for America, a NYC identity, a master’s degree, Jeff Albert, Mardi Gras balls, TV appearances, tenor vs. baritone sax, beard vs. mustache, original music, the Circle Bar, the desert, Buddhism, universal truths, Lee Allen, Mark Mullins, Jason Mingledorff, John Papa Gros, a quarantine quote, Esplanade Studio, a glimmer of hope, a father’s recognition, and much more.
