b. c.1908, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. Bridges performed tenor saxophone in a variety of territory rings in the Midwest in the past due 20s and early 30s. Best-known of the rings was that led by Alphonso Trent, and he also frequently worked well alongside Charlie Christian. In 1939 Bridges became a member of Harlan Leonard’s Rockets but his profession was interrupted by armed service service, and he played frequently around Los Angeles and in addition visited European countries, but made hardly any effect in either area. On the data of his recordings with Leonard, and specifically ‘A La Bridges’, Bridges was a gifted and officially assured participant with considerable creativity. It could well be the fact that Leonard recordings had been exceptions as opposed to the guideline, or it might simply be considered a matter of personal whim that held him from better factors; if the last mentioned, then your jazz world appears to have dropped a new player of merit.
