 JAZZ AT MEADE (JAM), with support from Yellow Door Concert Series, welcomes Tony Craddock, Jr. & Cold Front for the sixth and final concert on Sunday October 16, 2022, 4pm until 6pm.

 “...I think [Tony Craddock, Jr.] might have the best ‘how I got into the music I play’ story that I’ve ever heard.” —Chris Richards, The Washington Post 


 At the age of eight, Tony discovered smooth jazz on The Weather Channel’s “Local on the 8s.” The catchy melodies during the forecast segments led him to the saxophone and his passions for music and meteorology became inseparable. These interests followed him to Cornell University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science. Now, he uses his saxophone to usher an uplifting breeze of inspiration into the minds and spirits of listeners, blending jazz, gospel and soul—a sound he calls “Cold Front Music.” 




Tony’s latest single “Elevation” is based on his journey of staying grounded on the Solid Rock while climbing towards his God given destiny. His releases have landed on Spotify’s jazz editorial playlists, in addition to airing on Sirius XM Watercolors, Music Choice Smooth Jazz, The Weather Channel and more than 70 radio stations worldwide. His 2018 album H2O is produced by Grammy nominated jazz guitarist Ken Navarro and features Grammy winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum on a soul stirring offering of “Amazing Grace.” 


 Tony has shared his music at festivals, concert series, jazz clubs, and church worship services throughout the U.S. He has also shared the stage with award-winning artists Norman Connors, Jean Carne, Ken Navarro, Ben Tankard, Luther Barnes, Kim Jordan, and Kayla Waters. 


 He is a Voting Member of the Recording Academy’s DC Grammy Chapter and believes his music has nothing to do with him, but rather the gifts with which God has blessed him.
