Alex Brown

The understated virtuosity of pianist Alex Brown is a clear indication that reports of jazz music’s demise are greatly exaggerated. Fast emerging at the forefront of a new generation of artists, Brown is mightily armed with the technique of jazz tradition, reinvested with fresh curiosity and vision for what jazz is, and can be.

Featured in the January 2010 issue of Keyboard Magazine, Alex Brown’s reputation continues expanding via his notable performances with everyone from innovative saxophonist Miguel Zenon to the legendary Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. “A really fine record that leaves you wanting more,” said DownBeat magazine of Pianist, Alex Brown’s 2010 debut CD (Sunnyside), further emphasizing “…and Brown can play!” That is something jazz audiences throughout the world have been discovering since 2007, when he joined the group of the renowned Paquito D’Rivera, sharing in the ensemble’s 2010 Grammy nomination as a part of D'Rivera's album, “Jazz-Clazz.”
