This CD was recorded on Thursday, October 4, 2012 at The Carriage House Cafe in Ithaca, New York, as part of a series of jazz concerts called "Jazz Spaces - Ithaca," organized by Paul Merrill in collaboration with Cornell University. The theme for the evening's concert was "Friends and Family" because with the exception of two of the tunes, all of the other music was either written by myself for members of my family and for good friends, or they were original pieces written by musician friends of mine.
The Steve Brown Quartet's upcoming performance on October 4 at the Carriage House Cafe couldn't have been better chosen as the second event for JazzSpacesIthaca, given the project's goal of building community and energizing public spaces.
Brown recently retired after forty years as director and founder of jazz studies at Ithaca College. As an educator, Brown has played mentor to generations of local musicians, including Paul Merrill, Gussman Director of Cornell Jazz Ensembles, who will join the quartet on the trumpet for a few songs.
Brown's credentials as a performer are equally strong. He has played with such greats as Jimmy Smith, Paquito D'Rivera, Chuck Mangione, Phil Woods, and Ray Charles. As a member of Chuck Israels' National Jazz Ensemble, Brown toured the United States and Europe many times.
In addition to Brown on the guitar, the Steve Brown Quartet includes Chris Persad, trumpet and flugelhorn, whose style was described by Lucid Culture as "glissando-drenched, bluesy." Dino Losito, called "an inspired bopster" by John Gilbert in California Jazz Coast, will play the organ. Danny D'Imperio, whom Jack Bowers of All About Jazz praised as "first-class all the way," will be on the drums.
