Brandon Primus Brandon Primus

Profile: Instrumentalist/Arranger/Performer The manner and flow of my music is heavily influenced by the music of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jazz musician Miles Davis and other notable artists such as John Coltrane, Grover Washington, Jr., and Kenny G. My style of music is a hybrid of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and R&B. Basically a historical culmination of styles that black musicians have pioneered.

Brandon Primus is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA and was “Showtime at the Apollo” winner. He attended University Louisiana Monroe (ULM). He worked at Columbia Records as a talent scout in New York City. He has shared the stage with artists like Rashaan Patterson, Jody Watley, Jeffrey Osborne, Eric Roberson, and has performed at places like BB King's Jazz and Blues Night Club in Times Square, The Sugar Bar NYC, and at the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, VA.

Brandon later moved to San Diego, California and received his law degree at the prestigious Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

His California venues include, Bing Crosby’s, Four Points By Sheraton, San Diego Wine, 98.1 Smooth Jazz Festival, The USS Midway Museum, Palihouse Holloway in West Hollywood, and Pechanga Casino and Resort in Temecula, CA and many more. View the latest videos and music at:

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
