You're right - it's RARE that I would place such a strong adjective in front of a guest's name.  Here'w why: it's important for you to remember Patrick Bradley.  It's that simple.  But...maybe simple is not the word here :)

See, Patrick "daylights" as a regional President of Whole Foods!  Already, he's different, right?  In more ways than one! Check it out: he started at age 8 on a bargain basement organ.  And self-taught!   He played in Church for several years, all the while becoming immersed in the Beatles, Elton John, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.  Oh - and Rick Wakeman from the group, Yes.  That particular influence stayed with Patrick - when you hear the Moog synthesizer on his new CD - you'll smile. 

Classical music training in college and Jazz appreciation on the side - gravitating to Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. From school, he joined a five piece Rock band called "Joshua" - that group released an album in 1986, "Surrender."  At age 24, Patrick decided to focus on a career that was more stable.  With a wife and children, organic food retail seemed sensible.  

While working for Whole Foods in Chicago, we came to know Patrick via his debut, "Come Rain or Shine."  He was promoted to the Southern California division of the company and was able to record his second project, "Under the Sun." This was a partnership with Jeff Lorber, who was suggested by Patrick's mutual friend, Dave Koz.  

He's REALLY good at being an executive at his exceptionally successful day job, but when you hear Patrick Bradley PLAY - and that means piano, organ and Moog - WHOA.  We're kinda hoping that the music thingie takes over ;) Especially since the personnel on this album is so HOT!  You'll have to wait to hear who when Patrick joins us on 9/16!
