Jeff Bradetich

"Silence followed the final note as Jeff Bradetich completed an encore...those seconds of stillness were a tribute: When something is perfect, you can't bear to let it end."
- Eugene Register-Guard (Oregon)

"Jeff Bradetich used the double bass to give a lesson in musical phrasing that would have been anybody who has an interest in stringing notes together to make music."
- Austin American-Statesman (Texas)

"His playing had force and elegance, and he produced a remarkably clean, clear sound."
- New York Times

Earlier this week, the University of North Texas honored our very own Jeff Bradetich with the Creative Impact Award. This is a campus wide competition and Jeff was one of three that was nominated. It's wonderful that Jeff is being recognized for all his hard work and dedication to his students, the Bradetich Foundation and the University of North Texas.  Jeff's continuous contributions, expertise and creativity have a worldwide impact on how we view, hear and play the double bass.

Congratulations on!


Tammy Jo Leonard
Executive Director / Bradetich Foundation
