Brad Linde

Brad Linde is a saxophonist, pianist, composer/arranger, educator and bandleader living in the Washington D.C. metro area. His approach to the saxophone and improvising has drawn comparison to the melodic nature and easy swing of modern jazz titans including Lester Young, Allen Eager, Wardell Gray, Zoot Sims, Warne Marsh, and Lucky Thompson.

Linde has performed with jazz greats such as Barry Harris, Butch Warren, Ted Brown, Eddie Bert, Jimmy Wormworth, Freddie Redd, Slide Hampton, and Dan Tepfer, Gretchen Parlato, Chris Byars, Ari Roland, John Mosca, Jon Metzger, and Jim Ketch. He has performed in Germany and Austria, and at the East Coast Jazz Festival, Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, The Smithsonian Institute, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Chris' Jazz Cafe in Philadelphia and Smalls Jazz Club in New York.
