“All great things make a comeback. Or at least, they should. In terms of great music, nothing strikes the heart...more than jazz, and nothing inspires artist Brad Cole more than old school, jazz-inspired, bossa nova. Looking for an outlet to explore the sounds of bossa nova, Cole started Bossa Blue, a smoky quartet covering a wide range of classic rock tunes and jazz standards” -Listen Live and Local
“[Brad Cole’s] ‘Lay It Down’ masterfully takes listeners from the familiar spaces of reflective, lyric-driven folk music to the expansive reaches of bossa nova jazz. It’s a beautiful album.” -No Depression
