Brad Goode

SteepleChase recording artist Brad Goode is a double threat; he is an impressive talent as a trumpeter, as well as a jazz bassist. Goode led his own combo from 1986 until 1998, appearing at major festivals, and night clubs around the world, including a twelve year weekly stint at the famous Green Mill jazz club in Chicago. Having studied with Cat Anderson, Vincent DiMartino, Larry Gray and Donald Garrett, Goode has learned techniques from some of the contemporary jazz greats. Goode, in turn, has served on the faculties of the American Conservatory of Music, New Trier HS, Cuyahoga Community College, and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, where he is currently an Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies. When not making frequent appearances as a soloist and clinician at colleges and high schools throughout the country, he records music for the Delmark, Sunlight, and Steeplechase labels. Goode has a masters degree in Bass from DePaul University.
