JOHN BROWN JAZZ COMBO
This 7-piece group is a specialized project focusing on music for children, with programs for adult programs as well. Made up of saxophone, trombone, trumpet, guitar, piano bass and drums, this group showcases the instruments children will see in most jazz groups. It is my hope that children will see the instrument they will want to play when we come visit them aand perform at their school.
Anticipating the 2010 release of a double disc recording, this group performs familiar tunes designed to introduce children to the world of jazz at very early ages, and also adults who are new to the world of jazz. The combo is available as a featured group, or in conjunction with one of my featured performing groups with a variety of accessible programs for all audiences.
…a hard-swinging bassist…solid hard-bop music, played with consummate skill…
