Jeff Bradshaw and Friends featuring N'Dambi
In the mid-1990s, Philadelphia-born trombonist Jeff Bradshaw became a part of the city’s music scene, alongside DJs like Jazzy Jeff and King Britt, songwriters Andre Harris and Vidal Davis, and Roots members Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Tarik “Black Thought” Trotter and James Poyser. As part of that crew, Bradshaw would make his mark on the neo-soul sound, working with such artists as Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild. As a bandleader, Bradshaw keeps that collaborative style alive, mixing jazz, hip-hop and R&B, and on this date, he’ll be joined by N’Dambi, a singer who has sung background for Badu and Ariana Grande. Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. at City Winery. $35-$55.
