Peter Bradley and Javon Jackson
“In composing the music for With Peter Bradley…saxophonist Javon Jackson is also painting a series of pictures. The original music from the documentary... is like a full exhibit, an extended play expression of the lightheartedness and verve of the enigmatic Peter Bradley.”
“The work on 'With Peter Bradley' fits in perfectly with the be-bop idiom and is superbly executed … a passionate soundtrack with newly composed work by Javon Jackson, an excellent saxophonist & composer who is assisted by skilled musicians. They create a jazz timbre that seamlessly matches Peter Bradley’s colorful painting from the documentary. Lovely for eyes and ears.”
"Whether you ever see the documentary or not, the soundtrack is right in the wheelhouse for those who enjoy the hard bop, classic quintet recordings that we typically associate with the classic Blue Note period in the ‘60s. In many respects, though, it’s a timeless straight ahead jazz sound that Jackson presents here."
–Making A Scene
“Javon Jackson’s tenor sax plays warm and wonderful throughout this production. I love the richness Jackson finds in the heart of his instrument’s lower tones. … Another historic work that celebrates abstract painter Peter Bradley in an unforgettable way.”
"It's like watching a double movie. That of the real images of the story pertaining to Bradley and his pictorial art, and the one in which more or less seventy years of jazz music unfold, characterized by snapshots visible only to the eyes - and ears - of the mind, evoked and stimulated by the Jackson quintet. "
–Off Topic Magazine
"It was a privilege to compose an original music score for the documentary WITH PETER BRADLEY. My personal relationship with Peter began during my time with the great Art Blakey, as Peter and Mr. Blakey were close friends. Over the years, Peter’s support, encouragement, and availability toward me has never wavered, thus I am grateful and fortunate. This music is soulful, passionate, full of energy and cutting edge, just like Peter Bradley!!!"
