As a sought-after bass player, Brown has performed with Wynton & Ellis Marsalis, Rosemary Clooney, Diahann Carroll, Elvin Jones, Frank Foster, Nicholas Payton & many more. He’s shared the stage at Carnegie Hall, the Blue Note, the Kennedy Center & Hollywood Bowl. Festival appearances include the Playboy Jazz Festival, JVC Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival and Jazz à Vienne in France. And we shouldn’t ignore the command performance for the President of the United States…
