Jazz critic Scott Yanow, writing in the Los Angeles Jazz Scene, described Bradford Hayes as "an altoist whose tone recalls Phil Woods and Richie Cole but also the intensity of Jackie McLean." Yanow added that Hayes, "deserves much more recognition. His hard bop style looks back towards 1960s jazz while also containing enough surprises to be looking forward at the same time."

Through the years, he has performed with such jazz giants as tenor saxophonist Jimmy Heath, trombonist Al Grey, and pianist Ray Bryant and has appeared at such New York venues as Birdland, the Beacon Theater, and Tavern on the Green.

Funding for the New Jersey Jazz Society socials has been made possible in part by Morris Arts through the N.J. State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
