Brandino Brandino

Kevin “Brandino” Brandon is a seven-time Grammy-awarded Producer, Composer, Arranger and Bassist. His latest Grammy nomination was for the album Singularity by Robby Krieger of the Doors, nominated Best Pop Instrumental Album of the Year 2011. Among other high-profile projects last year, Brandino worked on the December 14, 2010 release of Michael Jackson’s new album entitled Michael (expected to be a big seller in 2011). Though based in Los Angeles, Brandino is no stranger to the rest of the country’s musical hotbeds, including a recent trip to New York in November to participate in a Warwick Family Photo shoot with his friends Larry Graham and Bootsy Collins. Warwick makes basses by which all other brands are measured, and the “Warwick Family” is a carefully selected group.

The increasing industry demand for Brandino’s unique skills began in 2005 when the rap group OutKast won the coveted Grammy awards for both “Album of the Year” as well as “Best Rap Album of the Year.” An album on which Kevin performed and had the opportunity to work with producer Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000), Brandino has been on a non-stop flight to the top ever since. This included performing on such projects as the 2007Grammy-nominated “Album of the Year” and “Best Pop Vocal Album” by Justin Timberlake (FutureSex/Love Sounds), the 2006 All Star Tribute Record release for Luther Vandross (on which Brandino performed on the Grammy winning songSo Amazing by artists Beyonce and Stevie Wonder), the 2006 Grammy “Best R&B Album of the Year” Breakthrough by Mary J. Blige, plus a standout performance at the American Music Awards with Jamie Foxx.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
