NEW YORK (AP) - At a memorial service today in New York City, newsman Ed Bradley has been saluted as a superior journalist, a humanitarian and a stylish lover of the good life.
At Manhattan's Riverside Memorial Church, Bradley's fellow Philadelphian Bill Cosby noted that he and Bradley developed their sense of "cool" from jazz greats like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie.
A surprise guest, former President Bill Clinton, said Bradley was like the jazz musicians he so admired Clinton said: "He always played in the key of reason, his songs were full of the notes of facts, but he knew that to make the notes of music you have to improvise."
He said watching Bradley was like seeing a master at work.
