The Britton Brothers

”If Uncertain Living is an indication, The Britton Brothers are likely to leave an indelible mark on the music scene.” - Woodrow Wilkins (AllAboutJazz.com)

In 2010 the Britton Brothers' released their debut album, Uncertain Living, to critical acclaim from various music critics and celebrated the release with a packed in crowd and a guest performance by saxophone legend, Chris Potter. One critic describe the record and the group, “Uncertain Living shows that the Brittons and their band are clearly ready for prime time -- the playing here is marvelous and the writing is even better: slightly quirky and very original while maintaining firm roots in the jazz tradition... these guys are for real.” - Dave Wayne (JazzReview.com). The group has kept busy since then touring the northeastern U.S., gigging in and around NYC and continuing the process of writing and performing new music. The group and its music has grown, and they plan to take their new artistry into the recording studio during 2011.

“Uncertain Living is an absolutely superb debut album, in every possible regard. If the band's future endeavors are as good as this album, The Britton Brothers Band will easily find success in the jazz scene.”

5 Star Review, Carly Doenges, musikreviews.com

“Filled with spunk, texture and fun, the Britton Brothers Band manages to pay homage to its roots in jazz and swing while still pushing forward into new territory.”

Woodrow Wilkins, AllAboutJazz.com

“Hip-hop, bebop and Monk--not a music business legal partnership, but a brief summation of some of the musical influences at work on Uncertain Living, the excellent debut album from the Britton Brothers Band.”

Bruce Lindsay, AllAboutJazz.com

“I've found these tunes both swinging and immensely listenable while simultaneously pushing and that 'goin' for something' style of playing that I love and draws me nearer.”

Damian Erskine, BassMusicianMagazine.com

“Honestly, this does not sound like a debut recording - the band works well together and there is a sense of joy in the music that comes from a shared vision. Nothing “Uncertain” about this CD; if you like music with a strong groove as well as good soloing, check this out.”
