Clea Bradford

Clea Bradford, 67, a versatile jazz singer who toured the Soviet Union with Earl “Fatha” Hines and recorded with Clark Terry in the 1960s, died Aug. 19 of complications from breast cancer at Holy Cross Hospital. She lived in Silver Spring.

Ms. Bradford, who settled into a second career as a voice coach in the Washington area after two decades of touring, was not a big star but a “huge twinkle,” as she once joked to The Washington Post, and was a favorite of critics. She performed locally in the 1970s and '80s, and reviewers found her compelling, noting her range, versatility and hornlike phrasing.
