ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
L.A. born and raised Pianist/Singer-Songwriter who has worked in all the major jazz clubs and with some of the best Musicians in Southern California.

Bruce Brown's lyrics are his claim to fame - they are witty, sophisticated and reflect his love of the 'Great American Songbook'.

Bruce Brown's Bio
"His songs are like potato chips, once you hear one, you'll wanna hear all of them."
Bruce Brown, originally from LA, established himself as a highly regarded pianist, singer, and songwriter performing at all the major jazz clubs in Southern California.

His songs have been described as 'original standards' and reflect his love of the great American songbook. Holding all the lyrics in place is a beautiful, almost invisible architecture. His words flow in careful trickles, clever bursts and soulful yearns. His melodies dance and float over chord changes that provide daring colouration. As a performer, Bruce's easygoing spontaneity establishes a natural rapport, always leaving his audience wanting more.

Bruce arrived in New Zealand late 1998 to take up the position as Senior Vocal Jazz Tutor at the Conservatorium of Music, Massey University Wellington where he currently teaches full-time and performs regularly in the capital.

In 2000 Bruce recorded 'I Believe It' in Sydney with fellow Americans Gordon Brisker and Don Rader, and Sydney's own Hamish Stuart and Jonathan Zwartz. His second album 'Love Finds You' was recorded in his home town of LA in early 2005 with a circle of his lifetime friends and jazz peers including Larry Koonse - guitar, Dave Carpenter - bass, Ron Stout - trumpet.

Fabulous sparkle of wit with an exceptional musical taste.
This CD is a splendid example of a seasoned pro doing something hard and making it sound easy. The musicianship and feel sets the tone early for a colorful ride into love,humor, and lyrical genious. My first introduction to Bruce was in the early 1980's as I was walking past his apartment and heard beautiful sounds from within. After stopping several times, he eventually invited me in and I watched him transcibe a John Coltrane sax solo to replace each note with lyrics. The end result was so exciting and intersting, that I recorded a demo of it in my own apartment for him. (I still listen to it today). Bruce has a genious unlike others in that he can nail the mood he is shooting for as well as capture a lyrical wit that blends perfectly with the music like peanut butter and jelly.
I look forward to seeing Bruce perform this material live and I'm sure his audiences will be even more amazed as I was. Thanks, Danny
